Book 3 in the Penny the Pencil series
Penny can’t believe her luck. She told everyone she was going to become a TV star and now it’s really happening! Officer Cool is Ralph’s favourite TV show and now Penny is to be his trusted side-kick, Officer Lead.
But someone has been tampering with the scripts and Penny has a feeling that the evil Black Texta is behind it all. Penny’s plan to run a competition during the show just might save the day, but when Bert the Bully wins the competition, she begins to get suspicious…
With the help of her new friends Clapper the clapperboard, Ruby the make-up brush and Meg the megaphone, Penny has to give the performance of her life if she is going to stop the show from being cancelled.
