Penny had a very bad day. Her desk, her clothes, and even her hair seemed to be against her. Can the little orange box that she received for her birthday help her day get better?

The present was from her big sister, Rosie,
and had just one rule to obey.
"You shall not,
     Can Not,
       WILL NOT,
  open this box...
unless you've had a bad day."

She is ready to bring the small stories from her games to picture books and chapter books!
