Penny Pack Rat lives in the Sonoran desert. Like all pack rats, Penny loves to collect things and her little burrow is filled with stuff she's found - always at night when the desert is cool. One day when her Nana says she's always wanted a shiny silver spoon, Penny becomes determined to find one for her. Penny starts out at night, wearing her backpack and looking for a silver spoon. Her friends worry about her safety. Sure enough, there are coyotes at the miner's camp, her favorite place to hunt. Will Penny be able to find that special spoon without getting caught? In this charming story told in verse, Conrad J. Storad creates a brave little pack rat who proves she's faster and smarter than the big coyotes. Facts about the Desert Pack Rat and a short list of Words to Learn included at the end of the book, provide extra value for young readers and listeners. Nathaniel Jensen's detailed and dramatic paintings recreate the beauty of the Sonoran Desert and depict a courageous and affectionate Penny who is certain to become a favorite of children everywhere. Readers will love finding their favorite ''junk'' in the many rooms of Penny's underground house. Here is a book that will appeal to ''pack rat'' readers of all ages.

About the Author:

Conrad J. Storad grew up in Barberton, Ohio. He has lived in the Sonoran Desert since 1982, when he began graduate school at Arizona State University. Currently, Storad is the editor of the national award-winning ASU Research Magazine, and is the founding editor of Chain Reaction a science magazine for young readers. His book Don't Call Me Pig! A Javelina Story won the Governor of Arizona's first-grade reader program award in 2005-2006. Conrad has written 17 books for children, including Life in the Slow Lane - A Desert Tortoise Tale; Lizards for Lunch, A Roadrunner's Tale; and Don't Ever Cross That Road! An Armadillo Story which was nominated for the 2006 Arizona Young Reader Award. In 2001, the Arizona Library Association and Libraries, Ltd., honored Storad with the Judy Goddard Award as Arizona's Children's Author of the Year. He is also a member of the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism s Hall of Fame. When he is not working, Conrad enjoys hiking and exploring the wilds of the Southwest with his wife, Laurie. Nathaniel P. Jensen loved to draw when he was a little boy. He always said he wanted to be an artist when he grew up, but he never wanted to do it for a living. Still, since graduating from the University of Texas in 1991 he's done nothing but work for a living as an artist. He's created massive murals and oil paintings, developed animated movies and music videos, and designed and illustrated everything from brochures to books. Nathan is the illustrator of Life in the Slow Lane - A Desert Tortoise Tale, and Don't Ever Cross That Road! An Armadillo Story, also by Conrad Storad. He lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Cassandra, and their young son Mason, who has already begun to inspire future projects.
