"Kids who have outgrown the Junie B. Jones series will enjoy Penelope's equally comical narrative style." --BCCB

In the third book in this hilarious, endearing series, all Penelope Crumb wants is to be someone's "Favorite." She'd thought she was her Grandpa Felix's Favorite, and her mom's Favorite, and her friend Patsy Cline's Favorite, but she's starting to realize that maybe she's not. And it's all The Bad Luck's fault. So since Penelope's a superb artist, she comes up with a plan--she's going to be the boss of the mural her school is making at the Portwaller's Blessed Home for the Aged, which will make her into everyone's Favorite.  And maybe it'll frighten The Bad Luck away. But things don't quite go as planned there either. And when an old woman named Nila promises to help Penelope find her luck so everyone will like her again, things get even worse! In the end, Penelope finds out that friendships aren't about luck--and that it doesn't matter if you're anyone's Favorite when there are tons of people who love you. In a book that's equal parts humor and heart, it's clear to see why young readers will count Penelope as one of their Favorites.
