Penina Pinkowitz and the Summer Situation
Meet the hilarious Penina Pinkowitz! A great read for kids.
Penina Pinkowitz is not a happy camper!
“Penina,” Mrs. Pinkowitz said. “Guess what? You’re going to day camp!”
“What?” Penina gasped. “Why are you punishing me?! I don’t want to
go to day camp! The girls aren’t my friends, the lunchroom smells like
socks, and there’s nothing interesting to do there!”
Mrs. Pinkowitz sighed. “Since school ended, you’ve done nothing but
read and carry out your ‘teensy’ experiments. I think you’re bored.”
“Ahhhhhh!” Penina let out a strangled cry.
Mrs. Pinkowitz continued as if it were nothing. As if she wasn’t sending Penina straight to summer jail.
Penina loves to sing at the top of her lungs, help her father with his incredible inventions, and wear nose plugs so she doesn't have to suffer from unpleasant smells. Her older sister is embarrassed by her, the cool girls at camp dislike her, and her counselor thinks she’s to blame for all the mishaps at camp.
With problems like this, how will she ever earn her deep-water card? Dive right into talented writer Shayna Horowitz’s entertaining story. You’ll love the antics of the irresistible and unconventional Penina.
