It’s Probably Penny
In the third book starring Lisa and her dog Penny, they tackle probability. Who took Lisa’s peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Could Penny become a movie star? What kind of pancakes will Mom make this morning? Lisa makes predictions and records results about a variety of events such as whether Penny could ever turn into a cat, eat an entire birthday cake, become the President of the United States, and much more.
