Betty and Veronica's Princess Storybook

I saw this when I was checking books in at work this morning and had to read it.  It's an Archie-style retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel, Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, and the Little Mermaid.  Betty and Veronica play the title characters (sometimes shared, as in the Little Mermaid and Rapunzel), and other Archie characters play the supporting cast (Cheryl as the Sea Witch and also the wicked queen's mirror were both a lot of fun!)

Another fun feature of this book is that each story is introduced with some historical facts, telling you when and who first wrote it down, how popular it's been, stuff like that.  There were a few cases where I actually enjoyed this more than the story (Rapunzel and Beauty and the Beast in particular). 

All in all, Betty and Veronica's Princess Storybook was a fun and super fast read.  It was exactly what I needed after work today.  :)
