Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Welcome to my inside flap. You know, most inside flaps in books try to sum up what the book's all about, and they usually have plenty of fancy terms like, "magically woven," or "packed with laughs," or "a triumph of the human spirit." And, of course, all of this is just a thinly veiled attempt to get you, the book browser, to buy the book.

But not on my inside flap, no sir.

I've got too many stories to tell, and I can't waste any space.

So, with that in mind, here's a caption for the photograph of me on pages 58-59.

I really enjoy a nice traditional Japanese steam bath. And so do my two lovely companions, Timori (left) and Masako. They're both flight attendants for a Japanese airline. And before you get any ideas, we're just friends. You know Tyra's the only one for me.

From the Back Cover

" "It was a real honor to represent my country in the Olympics."
--Penny Hardaway

"Without a doubt, one of the best books ever written by Li'l Penny."
--George Gervin

"LP, are you screening your calls? Call me man. It's KG."
--Kevin Garnett

"Genius. I'm overwhelmed. An amazing achievement."
--Li'l Penny Hardaway

"Every once in a while comes a magical story, an exquisite jewel of a book, a piece of fiction that more than makes up for all the ordinary books one usually reads. Such a book is The Bridges of Madison County."
--Indianapolis News

The reader from Knoxville, TN is an idiot. Sorry to ruin your hoop dreams, but Stacy Wall is a man. You can tell this by his picture in the back inside flap (where it says he has webbed feet). So your "sorry ladies" line was pretty dumb, Chucko. And that garbage scene you wrote was about as funny as a case of head lice.
That aside, this book was a riot. Do not overlook a word on any page. If there are any copies of The Case of the Purloined Pancakes still in publication, I want to find them! I need more LP!

This is a book that tells you everything about Li'l Penny. It also gives stuff about Penny. Some parts are funny. You have a really fun time with this book. I recommend it to all the Penny and Li'l Penny fans out there.

I remember the first time I saw a Little Penny commericial - I couldn't change the channel fast enough! That's how much that puppet spooked me! I remember thinking - Nike expects to sell shoes by scaring the heck out of people? Good Luck! I mean, I couldn't even sleep at night thinking Little Penny was under my bed. Some of my friends told me that the commercial tv spots were supposed to be funny and I said, yeah, I guess they are pretty funny...if you're WEIRD. All that aside, I found myself so focused on Little Penny (is he a spirit trapped in a doll? is he a figment of the real Penny Hardaway's imagination? is his skin warm like a persons?) I couldn't help but read this book to look for some answers. All I can say is - that woman who wrote this - Stacy Wall...let's just say, I wouldn't like to see the inside of her head. Move over Dean Koontz, there's a new King in town (and I'm not talking about Stephen King!) I'm talking about Stacy Wall!

I am a basketball fan and happen to work around the entertainment business and know a friend who knows Stacey Wall, and that guy is a genus! His Little Penny stories will crack you up, I guarantee. For those of you familar with advertising, Stacey also did the NIKE ads with the FUN POLICE (very hilarious) and the one with Jordan in slow motion. But my favorite is Li'l Penny! This book has got all the best moments. Try it, or as Lit'l Penny says "GET OUT OF HERE!"

Penny Hardaway is my favorite basketball player. I wish Shaq hadn't desserted the Magic. I'm glad Kazaam! stunk. Li'l Penny and Big Penny are both hilarious. This book is a good way of getting to know them better. Can you believe Li'l Penny has a dog! I bet it's Penny's dog really. Otherwise who would walk it??? Anybody who likes basketball should buy this book.

On the bus, I was shocked to find a short fellow who looked like the Lil Penny of Regal fame. Based on the basketball player, he was a delight to watch at the movies of yesteryear. This volume is mostly photos with some personal data to keep the viewer interested.
