From Book Bridge Press:

"Sometimes the best stories start out as a seed of thought. Rhonda Olson Lundgren created Penelope and when she started writing, her talent for finding the warmth and charm of her story's character came shining through. From the first draft, we adored the kind and gentle personality of Penelope, and as we worked through the stages of editorial with Rhonda, made certain that all the nuances of Penelope's tender heart were emphasized. The lesson this little purple ant teaches about the value of spending time with those you love reaches far beyond age and time. We were excited to help our client Rhonda Olson Lundgren bring her dream of Penelope to life!"
