One thought on “Penny and Peter”

  1. Nicely written and a very pleasant book, full of '40s charm. Probably 3 stars for me now, but I gave it 4 because I think I'd have loved it as a little kid.

  2. A but of a dated book, but a very sweet story, nevertheless. I read this to my kids as a bedtime story, and they loved it.

  4. I read this book to my daughter, and we both enjoyed it. It was fun to hear continuation of Penny and Peter's story, and I particularly appreciate the way the characters interact and respect one another.

  6. This book talks about two brothers and how they have fun. I like the book because it is funny and creative.
