Penny Dreadful is a Complete Catastrophe

‘My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful bit is my dad’s JOKE. But I do not see the funny side. Plus it is not even true that I am dreadful… honest. You see the DISASTER with Rooney the class rat, might not have been such a DISASTER if it wasn’t for Cosmo Moon Webster and his Amazing Maze. AND it is utterly not my fault that the Patented Burglar Trap accidentally tripped Gran over, so her bone went snap. ALSO I only took Barry the cat to the hospital so he could revive Gran with the Power of Pets.

How was I to know it would be a complete CATASTROPHE?’
