PENNY AND HER MARBE by Kevin Henkes. Greenwillow, 2013.
Penny is back. In her latest story, Penny finds a marble on Mrs. Goodwin's front lawn. She takes it, but is riddled with guilt worrying about whether or not the marble might belong to Mrs. Goodwill herself. Is Mrs. Goodwill missing her marble? How can Penny return it? Always at the heart of the books in this series is the child's heart and mind. Perhaps that is why kids love Penny so much and are eager for her next adventure.
