Penelope Kingston goes on a camping trip with her classmates in the second book in the charming new Penelope Perfect chapter book series.

Penelope Kingston is determined not to feel anxious about going on a school camping trip. On last year’s trip, Penelope cried (only tears, not sobs) when a teacher made them climb a ridiculously steep and frightening hill. Penelope would never forgive herself if she did that again.

To make sure she has a practically perfect time this year, Penelope has written a (very private) list of rules. And what’s rule number one? No crying.

Penelope is a whole year older now. And (more importantly) she now has her very own best friend to bunk with. Will this camping trip be the perfect weekend she’s expecting?

Chrissie Perry is the author of over thirty books for children and young adults, including thirteen books in the popular Go Girl series, the award-winning Whisper, and the Penelope Perfect series. She lives in St. Kilda with her husband, three children. Like Penelope Kingston, Chrissie believes it’s great to aim for excellence. But she also has a sneaking suspicion that going with the flow every now and then can also work out just fine.
