Tall as an eyelash,
quick as a plane
was the tiniest fairy,
Penelope Jane.

Penelope Jane de la Fesser, a flying French fairy, is just the perfect size to live in the right-hand dresser drawer of her very best friend, five-year-old Carrie. When this eyelash-fall fairy decides one day to go to school with Carrie, she doesn't let her tiny size stand in the way of getting into some really big trouble! But when the whole school is suddenly in danger, Penelope Jane musters a lion's share of courage in order to save the day.

This deluxe book-and-CD package features the original song "How to Be Strong," written and performed by Grammy Award-winning singer Rosanne Cash. Quirky, energetic illustrations by award-winning artist G. Brian Karas bring to life the mountains of fun packed info this story about the smallest of heroines.
