Pretty Penny has lots of big ideas. For instance, she wants to throw a birthday party for her grandmother, Bunny, but there is only one problem-she doesn't have any money! What's a creative, industrious girl to do? When Penny notices that Bunny's attic is cluttered with old things that still have value, Penny has an idea-create a "Small Mall!" Penny will have to clean up and set up shop in the attic to sell the old items to earn the money for Bunny's surprise celebration. Author/illustrator Devon Kinch has created a charming, stylish character with a signature look, just like such classic children's book characters as Madeline, Eloise, Pippi Longstocking, and Olivia-Penny is never without her fuschia purse! With Pretty Penny's help, kids can get money savvy! * Hardcover book with 40 pages * Suitable for ages: 4 years to 8 years
Devon Kinch is a designer and illustrator who struck upon the idea for Pretty Penny while successfully repairing her own relationship with money after years of accruing debilitating debt. The Pretty Penny series became her thesis work at the Designer as Author program at the School of Visual Arts. It is Devon's belief that young children can avoid financial trouble by learning how to establish a healthy relationship with money at an early age through fun, creative storytelling. This is her first children's book.
Somerville, Massachusetts-based Candlewick Press started small. The staff of three—founder Sebastian Walker, editor Wendy Boase, and designer Amelia Edwards—began publishing books for children in Walker's spare bedroom under the name Walker Books before expanding in 1991. Since then, the company has published over 3,000 children's books and expanded to middle-grade and young-adult titles, cementing it as one of the largest independent publishing companies in the world.
