Children Ages 8+ • 1.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Penny Pollard is trying desperately to get one of her hard-hitting articles published in the town newspaper, but the editor wants only gossipy community news. Then there's that wedding. Despite her many creative excuses, Polly can't worm her way out of wearing a humiliating pink gown, the same gown her goody-goody classmate can't wait to don. These plots intertwine, leading to a surprising resolution, with lots of laughs along the way. Narrator Rebecca Macauley is Penny--conniving yet guileless, desperate yet undaunted. Her Australian accent enhances the tasty regional language. Sure to keep middle-grade readers giggling and cheering Polly on, this may even inspire some budding reporters to start tapping away at their computers. E.S.
