In for a Penny is a thrilling and humorous book that helps children learn that money can’t buy happiness. Happiness doesn’t come from something round, bronze, and worth thousands of pounds. Happiness comes from the people around you.
The book is written by Mr Willment, a primary school teacher who has used his experience and knowledge to create a realistic and relatable setting for the story. The characters are well-developed and have distinct personalities that make them easy to root for. The dialogue is witty and funny, and the illustrations by Adrian DKC add to the charm and appeal of the book. I loved how Mr Willment narrated this story that created a mystery and suspense throughout and made the reader curious about what happened next. The book cover is also beautiful and enough to grab the attention of readers who love crime and detective stories.
Perfect book for children aged 8+
