‘My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful bit is my dad’s JOKE. But I am definitely not dreadful… it’s just that sometimes people don’t appreciate the brilliance of my ideas. I mean it was a BRILLIANT IDEA to hunt a VAMPIRE and Cosmo said Mr. Bentley Bucket was only pretending to be human. Also Grandma Overall who does not see the BRIGHT SIDE needed cheering up, so I don’t know why she didn’t like her super-sparkly MAKEOVER.
And the water spraying all over the kitchen was completely worth it because I ended up being a Record Breaker!’
