Penny And The Plain Piece Of Paper Philomel/Penguin Random House

Penny Lives on a plain piece of paper, with just one problem- she’s bored. There’s nothing to do, no one to talk to, not a single way to keep herself entertained! And so Penny makes a decision: it’s high time she ventured out into the world and explored other types of paper.

In this fun and funny book about fitting in and finding a home, imagination wins the day.

“Penny’s journey through varying visual styles is bright, fascinating, and funny . . . Irresistibly touchable.” —Kirkus Reviews, *STARRED REVIEW*.

“An unseen author guides a scribble through the elements of story creation...Vivid, offbeat, and instructive.”
