With warmth and humour, award-winning author-illustrator Matt Phelan follows a child as she leads her daddy on some rainy-day flights of fancy. It's raining and raining and raining, and Penelope is bored. "What would you do if you could choose?" asks her daddy. Well, if Penelope could choose, she'd go to the zoo. Or be a cowgirl. Or a pirate captain who sails to the island of dinosaurs, or flies away on a rocket to the moon. If Penelope could choose, she'd go off on amazing adventures - but then again, being stuck inside may not be so bad if your daddy is along for the ride!
