Penelope is determined to win Patsy back. When the girls are chosen to paint a mural at Portwaller’s Home for the Aged, it’s Penelope’s chance to show what a great friend (and talented artist) she is.
But then a mean old lady called Nila Wister steals Penelope’s paintbrushes, bullies her for treats and curses her with terrible Bad Luck! And, sure enough, no one can agree about the mural, Penelope’s in trouble at school (again!), and Vera and Patsy are closer than ever.
Can Penelope find a way to win her Good Luck and her best friend back once and for all?
