Penny is big, happy, and not terribly bright...ok, kind of dumb. She loves taffy and hates math. She's also a mouth-breather. But ever so occasionally, out of nowhere, she'll say something wise beyond her years. Penny's got a big heart and loves to help her friends. She hearts approval. Unfortunately, she often ends up torn between her roles as loyal lady-in-waiting to Portia and true buddy to Bessie.
