Puppet Penelope on holidays in Spain

Hello My name is Penelope, and I am one of a group of puppets who featured in a book, DVD and two exhibitions earlier this year.
Now as I am no longer Twenty-one I found it all Exhausting!
My mentor Ann, decided a week of sun, sea, and sand was just what the doctor ordered so we headed for Spain. Perfect for recharging my batteries. 
I am now ready for our next engagements. 
Get to know us-  read our book LIFE OUTSIDE THE BOX (which you can purchase here)  

PS Ann had a good time too!
