When Pretty Penny learns that Doodle's Animal Farm is in need of donations, she knows it's up to her and pet pig, Iggy, to save the day! The pair quickly brainstorm a fundraiser—running their very own movie theater. Everyone works hard to ensure the event's success, but at the end of the day, the money raised sure looks tempting to Iggy! Will he find the strength of character to share the proceeds with the animals in need? Or will he have to learn the hard way that dishonesty comes with a high price tag? This charming beginning reader about financial and social responsibility brings the successful Pretty Penny franchise to a whole new group of readers—those ready to read on their own.
