This comic, with its limited vocabulary for emergent readers, has a complex, mystical story line, which will also appeal to older children. ... The visual narrative flows through large and small panels, where speech bubbles and sound effects are used sparingly but to great effect. ... Youngsters will return to this tale of old and new friendship and loss, finding in Penelope’s experiences something that speaks to their own hearts. ... An unusual and unique choice for all libraries.–.
—School Library Journal

Bold and bright drawings tell the tale of Penelope the Fox, who is on a perilous journey to recover her heart after she accidentally dropped it into the sea. Short sentences and simple panels make this an ideal first comic for new readers.
