The Sassy Pants concert is one week away, and Penny's best friend Emma has spent her whole allowance! It's Pretty Penny to the rescue, with another of her big ideas—La Perfect Pup Salon! Local pups will come away with such hilarious styles as the Punk and the Regal, and the girls will earn enough money for their tickets! And with Pretty Penny's Saving Setup, they'll save money for charity and for future needs, too!
Author-illustrator Devon Kinch has created a charming, stylish character with a signature look, just like such classic children's book figures as Madeline, Eloise, and Olivia.
DEVON KINCH is a designer and illustrator who struck upon the idea for Pretty Penny while successfully repairing her own relationship with money after years of accruing debilitating debt. The Pretty Penny series became her thesis work at the School of Visual Arts. Devon believes that young children can avoid financial trouble by learning how to establish a healthy relationship with money at an early age.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Devon studied painting and art history as an undergraduate and earned her Master's Degree in Design from the School of Visual Arts in 2009. She lives in West Hurley, New York.
