Penelope's poppy always wears khaki pants. When he finds a hole in one pair, he asks Penelope to patch it up. Penelope likes to sew . . . but this is a big job. Penelope struggles, but with a little help from her mama, she gets the job done.
Doll-maker Melissa Conroy makes her picture-book debut with a friendly and off-beat cast of doll characters, featured in artwork layered with photographs and illustrations. This charming story is followed by a postscript from Melissa's father, the writer Pat Conroy, which gives a personal, behind-the-scenes description of the book's characters and author.
Melissa Conroy began sewing when she was in second grade and she hasn't stopped since. She is the designer and producer of woOberry dolls, a line of characters each with their own name and story.
Jacketed hardcover. Ages 3-7.
