really liked it
Read from January 31 to February 01, 2011

The ending is wonderful, the story is great...so much fun. It is a story about discovery - Penelope discovers Penny, her dad discovers cooking, her mother discovers garbage, and they all discover their magical inner resources. I am a wisher - sometimes its prayer, sometimes its just wishing - and know the power of wishing (so you have to be super careful), so I appreciated Penny's wishes, appreciated her faith and also her realization that it isn't enough to wish - you have to DO something too. There is a silliness to the story too - Up-Betty and Down-Betty, Twent and Duncan's allergies - again, very fun. I would have read this to my kids, but read ahead when they were asleep.
