School Library Journal Review
Gr 3-6 Since she can't get out of being a flowergirl in a friend's sister's wedding, Penny Pollard keeps a detailed account of the events leading up to the ceremony so that she can write an article for The Kooringa Gazette. Through her diary entries, readers meet an independent, spirited, and determined Australian girl with an unusual assortment of interests. Although Penny Pollard in Print is the third in a series, each book stands alone. Scattered photographs and cartoon-like illustrations add a sense of intimacy, although those on the endpapers will make placing pockets and labels difficult. Australian slang is not distracting and, although not defined, will be understood by American readers within the context of the story. Most readers will enjoy Penny's humorous view of life around her and will marvel at her crazy schemes. Fast, easy, and entertaining reading. Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Pub . Lib . , Tex.
