From the author of “8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf” comes an original fairy tale about a teenage princess who hires the witch from “The Frog Prince” to get revenge on a Mean Girl at school. (Intended for YA readers and up.)

No joke, I love this kind of stuff!  I reviewed Mullin’s other book, 8: The Previously Untold Story of the Unknown 8th Dwarf, not too long ago and adored it. There’s just something about a story told or wrote in rhyme that I love.  But not just any old rhyming tale will do; I need it witty, fun, and clever. Thankfully, Mullin does this well.

The Plight & Plot of Princess Penny is a little modern mixed with classic fairytale. Penny may be a princess, but she certainly doesn’t rule at school.  The girl she once considered a best friend is queen bee, and makes Penny miserable.  Finally Penny has enough, and seeks the help of a witch in the woods.  The witch agrees to help, but everything comes with a price.

Like the description says, this book is intended for YA and up.  I let two fifteen-year-old girls I know read it, and they loved it too.  One thought it was a little long, but worth it.  Seriously, it only takes about fifteen minutes to read, so I guess it’s just what you consider long for this type of story.

Overall, The Plight & Plot of Princess Penny is quick and fun.  The author did a good job with the twists and bringing everything together.  Anyone who can think and write like that has my respect.  And isn’t the cover cute?  I think so.
