ABOUT THIS BOOK

When Pretty Penny learns that Doodle's Animal Farm is in need of donations, she knows it's up to her and pet pig, Iggy, to save the day! The pair quickly brainstorm a fundraiser—running their very own movie theater. Everyone works hard to ensure the event's success, but at the end of the day, the money raised sure looks tempting to Iggy! Will he find the strength of character to share the proceeds with the animals in need? Or will he have to learn the hard way that dishonesty comes with a high price tag? This charming beginning reader about financial and social responsibility brings the successful Pretty Penny franchise to a whole new group of readers—those ready to read on their own.

QUOTES

BooklistOnline.com, April 12, 2012:
"This leveled reader features appealing characters, widely spaced type, and an easy-to-follow plot, with enough twists to keep emergent readers interested."

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

DEVON KINCH is the author-illustrator of the Pretty Penny series. 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. Devon studied painting and art history, and earned her Master's Degree in Design from the School of Visual Arts in 2009. She lives in the Hudson Valley of New York State, with her husband and daughter.
