It's the first day of the summer holidays and Pistachio Shoelace has big plans. Plans that involve a compass, a cave, and a buried treasure. Plans that do not involve a troublemaking little sister wearing bunny ears and a Superman cape.Forced to take baby Penny to the park, Pistachio prepares for a dull day. But between fruit thefts, a witch's garden, and an angry park warden with a rulebook, a day with Penny is anything but boring.Marie-Louise Gay's engaging Princess Pistachio returns in her second book for early readers. Winningly translated from French by Gay's son Jacob Homel and illustrated throughout with Gay's distinctive, brightly-coloured art, Princess Pistachio and the Pest will charm young princesses and Super-Bunnies everywhere.

An inviting and appealingly illustrated short chapter book full of humor and life issues that beginning readers will easily identify with and relate to.

Pistachio Shoelace (also known as “Princess Pistachio”)’s loveable little sister, Penny, is the “pest” in this beginner chapter book. When Pistachio is told by her mother to take Penny (who is dressed in her beloved Superman cape and bunny ears) to the park on the first day of summer holidays, her plan to find buried treasure with her friends is thwarted. However, the trouble that Penny gets into results in a day that’s just as adventurous as a treasure hunt … in a very different way!
While laughing at this frantically funny tale, readers will also be cheering for Pistachio, who is blamed for all of the trouble caused by her younger sibling.
This book is the sequel to Princess Pistachio. ** Recommended for ages 5 to 8 years.
