Penelope's Peace Place

Lolisa Marie Monroe

Monroe takes the simple act of a little Prairie Dog named Penelope looking for a little peace in her world and weaves it into a story. Penelope has 'no time to play' with her sister, brother, and niece. She needs to find some peace and a place to think her big thoughts. Her journey takes her far and wide and she even finds a snack on her travels. When she finally reaches her destination of peace and quiet, she thinks and thinks. That is when the biggest thought she ever had comes into her mind.

Draw and Care is a team of illustrators in war-ravaged Ukraine, who use their talents to compose heartwarming paintings of animals, people, houses, and even vehicles! A portion of the profit helps rescue and care for pets that have been displaced in their country. They build enclosures, buy food, and pay for veterinarian care.

Praise for this book

"Penelope's Peace Place is another delightful read from Miss LoLisa's bookshelf. Monroe's ability to tell meaningful stories through animals and captivate and engage young readers is a genuine gift.
In addition to the wonderful story, I love the illustrations. Her work with Draw and Care in Ukraine is so inspiring! It is a joy to share the meaningful messages and life lessons through Monroe's books."

"Monroe delights children and their caregivers with her thoughtful tails and illustrated 'tails' from her creative artist friends in war-torn Ukraine. Your child will discover new animal friends as they turn the pages in anticipation as the story unfolds in Monroe's reassuring and thoughtful narrative."
