Enjoyable, romantic, intriguing
Unlike most books I read
She has a full grasp of the characters. It is like a performance rather than a book reading.
There is a moment when Penelope is trying to ride an early bicycle with her eyes closed. She is trying to find the zoo by sense of smell. That actually isn't even the craziest thing that happens in the book. Hint: there is also an incident with singing pirates.
I still love the education in this book.
I would recommend this book. It is a good storyline that intrigued me enough to buy the rest of the series. There are tidbits of educational information strewn through the story.
It's a bit like Mary Poppins but Penelope is more fallible.
Her characterization is really good.
Even Agatha Swanburn may not have prepared Penelope for the three Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place.
