Re-read May 2012! Penny is sent to live with Aunt Winifred while her parents prepare for the birth of her new baby brother. While there she writes a ton of letters to everyone and it's hilarious seeing how she twists things around, depending on who she's writing to :D AND how she comes around to liking Alistair ;)

Also oh god the letter from Jason whose middle name is Gabriel made me cry with laughter!

I turned many erasers into tombstones for E. Raser in grade two because of this too :D

Penny Pollard is a wonderfully rude young lady, and here is a collection of letters that she wrote while staying with her horrible Aunt Winifred's.

This is part of a series I read when I was a bookish child, who would have loved a brash tomboy friend like Penny.

It has a lot of stamps and photos and other things decorating the pages so it is rather delightful to read and really feels like you got Penny's stash of letters.
