I like this book because it makes me happy
I have been reading this book every day! I like this book because it makes me happy.
At the start of the book the pages are not very colourful blues and I think it was night time, but I love the bright pages at the end which were colourful. I did spot the difference with my Mummy. I like when its nice bright pages. The shops look really good especially the flower shop.
I liked the pages where Penny was playing with Smudge. It is very funny when the dog is doing a handstand. I
was happy when Penny liked her new house. I want to have a tea party with my friends Alice and Ava now!
