'Penelope Kingston is absolutely certain that her stall at the school fete will be a huge success. She and Oscar are in charge of the lucky jars, and Penelope wants to break last year's record. This is even more important because Penelope's dad is coming to the fete, and she and her brother don't see him very much these days. Penelope could nearly burst with excitement! If she can make her dad proud, maybe he'll want to spend every weekend with Penelope and Harry. She just has to make sure everything goes perfectly ... ' (Publication summary)

    'Penelope Kingston is very, nearly, almost perfect – or rather she tries to be. She’s also very funny, although she doesn’t try to be. Come along with her as she finds a best friend, heads off on school camp and turns the fete into a roaring success! 

    From best-selling Australian author Chrissie Perry comes this practically perfect bind-up of the first three Penelope Perfect books. 

    Including Project Best FriendVery Private List for Camp Success and Lucky Jars & Broken Promises, the Penelope Perfect series celebrates the Hermione Grangers and Lisa Simpsons of the world. Girls who are kind and smart but somehow don't quite seem to fit in. Girls who worry, lose their tempers and sometimes feel anxious. And girls who are the most wonderful, talented and feisty people you've ever met!'
