“While Penny is in the garden smelling flowers, the mailman delivers a new doll from Gram. What should Penny name her? She tries names that she knows and names based on what she is wearing, but nothing seems right. Perhaps the answer is right under her nose!”
— Lisa Fabiano, Wellesley Books, Wellesley, MA

Description


When Penny receives a surprise box in the mail from Gram, she is thrilled. The surprise is a doll, and she is absolutely perfect, from her head to her toes. Penny loves her immediately.
