Mean girl vs. princess vs. the witch who turned a prince into a frog. Penny could have made it through high school without the help of black magic, but where's the fun in that? Witches make things messy. They're tricky and can get really ugly when they're mad. Penny, unfortunately, went shopping to the wrong place and pissed off the wrong person.
Her plan to get revenge rebounded.
So in my review of 8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf I'd rambled on about how much fun it was and how much the writing resembled Dr.Seuss's and how I read it all in one go because it was really cool.
Yeah, this was no different.
The Plight and Plot of Princess Penny is hilariously cute. It's the plan of revenge that goes wrong and ends up with a happily ever after... or not? (dun, dun, duuuuuun)
Penny wants to humiliate the mean girl at her school for picking on her all the time, so when she finds an witch's ad on a magazine for potions Penny takes the opportunity and visits the witch's cottage... in the dark forest... across a rickety old bridge... where she meets a nosy troll by the name of Jink.
It's a lot more cuter than 8, but just as awesome. The story itself is pretty predictable, but it's fun to read and reread and rereread
I recommend this one just as highly as I recommend 8. They're both great short poems!

This is a short story, written in rhyme. Princess Penny is not popular at school, and wants to get revenge on her arch rival Darcy. After seeing an advert for a witch in a magazine, Penny sets off to find her and to get a spell for revenge on Darcy, but things don’t go according to plan, and Penny finds herself in hot water.
This was an okay story, but I didn’t like it as much as the first story in the series.
Penny seemed a little immature, and didn’t seem to realise that at times her own behaviour was similar to that of Darcy’s, and she didn’t really have time to spend on people who weren’t involved in her revenge plan.
I think the main problem with this for me, was that the lines were too long. This may sound weird, but I found it hard to keep the pace of the lines so that they rhymed properly, and often had to read the lines twice or more to get the effect that I thought the author was going for. Because of this, the poetry aspect felt a little like hard work, which was a shame.
The storyline was okay, but I think it would probably be more suited to a younger reader, as overall the pace seemed quite slow, and the ideas were quite simplistic. I personally wanted to read faster to find out what happened more quickly, but couldn’t because of the issues with the length of the lines as mentioned earlier.
Overall; this was an okay story, but it felt a little slow.
6.5 out of 10.
