Norman Thelwell's best-loved characters are back in a special edition of a timeless favorite.

In the early 1950s, and quite to his surprise, artist Norman Thelwell became popular for his equestrian-themed cartoons. In an effort to satisfy a devoted and growing international following, Thelwell developed a cartoon strip about a particular horse-crazy young lady and her wicked pony called “Penelope and Kipper.” This became a book called Penelope, first published in 1972 and now found bound with other favorites in the popular collection Pony Panorama. Seventeen years later, a second series of adventures found its way to print in Penelope Rides Again. Thelwell's plucky, pint-sized equestrian was back in the saddle (or, more frequently, out of it) as she braved both showgrounds and countryside with the still-devilish Kipper.

Many years have passed since Penelope Rides Again was last widely available in print. But now the feisty Penelope and Kipper are back in this special 100th Anniversary Edition in honor of Norman Thelwell's Centenary. With Penelope's help, readers of all ages will learn to pick themselves up after a fall, no matter how hard…and laugh about it.

Author Notes: In 1952, Norman Thelwell penned his first cartoon for the satirical British magazine Punch, renowned internationally for its wit, irreverence, and for publishing the world's best comic writers and poets. This led to a relationship that lasted for 25 years and over 1,000 cartoons, including 60 front covers. Thelwell was a master of sharp social comment and sheer zany humor, and his 34 books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into numerous languages (thelwell.org.uk).
