What goes into a really good story? Only the best ingredients -- a heroine, a hero, excitement, a little romance, and even a villain or two. They are all here, as Aunt Isabel and her niece concoct a delightful story within a story.
When Penelope spends the night with her Aunt Isabel, they make up an exciting bedtime story about the adventures of Prince Augustus and Lady Penelope! This book is a fun read aloud that is a lively yarn, a visual treat, and a charming introduction to fiction -- all in one.
"Aunt Isabel is delighted to have her niece Penelope spend the night, and a made-to-order story is part of the package. Asking for guidance from Penelope along the way, Isabel weaves a story of a handsome prince and the enigmatic Lady Nell who can "fiddle like a cricket, sing like a dove and wiggle her ears." Isabel may ask for help, but she is clearly in charge here, insisting on "a little Danger" and "Villains" to flesh out her tale. No passive heroine awaiting the prince's marriage proposal, Nell tackles adversity in fine fashion." --Publishers Weekly
