If you buy a C pennywhistle, though, you might want to find music for 
recorder, as most of the pennywhistle books I've seen have music 
written for the D pennywhistle (the beginning level books, at 
least...but I'm a rank amateur with a pennywhistle.  VERY rank!!! 
<g>)  Of course, if you know enough about music to look at something 
written in D or G, can ignore the "this is how you finger this note" 
diagrams, and transpose it into C, it probably doesn't matter what 
book you're using to learn!
