Penny dreadful is a record breaker
Sometimes, people don't appreciate the brilliance of my ideas. It was a great idea to hunt a vampire and Cosmo said Mr Bentley-Bucket was only pretending to be human. Also, Grandma Overall 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.

Penny Dreadful is incredibly contagious
My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones but the dreadful bit is my dad's joke. In fact, I am not dreadful at all. It's just that sometimes my brilliant ideas turn into disasters. I didn't know that you can't do chickenpox for show-and-tell, or go to ballet class dressed as a blue cat, because, even in disguise, I am incredibly contagious.

Penny Dreadful cooks up a calamity
My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The 'Dreadful' bit is my dad's joke. But I do not mean to be dreadful. Sawing Bridget Grimes in half for the school show was supposed to be a good thing. And, I didn't mean to get up to any shenanigans on the school trip. Plus, I worked extra-especially hard on the cake of dreams for Mum's birthday but, somehow, it still turned into a huge calamity.
