Book Synopsis



Pennies, worthless? Non-cents!

Hot off the minting press, Penny feels like a million bucks. But as other coins and bills are spent while she sits forgotten, she begins to doubt her value. She is too small to slot-surf with Quarter. Even penny candy sells for a dime! Refusing to be short-changed, she sets out to find her purpose at any cost.

Readers will laugh at a wealth of money puns, learn a basic lesson on US currency, and discover that self-worth is truly priceless.



Review Quotes




A perfect opportunity to discuss the difference between mere purchasing power and real value. -- Booklist

"Filled with clever and chucklesome wordplay, Wilson's spry narrative is engaging but also educational, providing a solid, accessible introduction to basic money equivalents." -- Kirkus Reviews
