After she’s kidnapped by Madame Medusa, who intends to use the child in a diamond heist, she tries to escape but can’t fend off a pair of the kidnapper's crocodile colleagues. Fortunately, the plucky Penny has friends—two mice and an albatross—who help rescue her. She ends with not just her freedom but a loving home with a couple who want to adopt her.
