Visit Princess Emeralda isn't exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh is like a donkey's bray rather than tinkling bells, she trips over her own feet and she does NOT like Prince Jorge, whom her mother hopes she will marry. But if Emma ever thought to escape her life, she never expected it to happen by turning into a frog! When convinced to kiss a frog so he might return to being a Prince, somehow the spell is reversed and Emma turns into a frog herself! Thus begins the adventure - a quest to return to human form. Fascinating and hilarious characters ranging from a self-conscious but friendly bat to a surprisingly loyal snake and a wise old green witch confirm that readers won't soon forget this madcap story! A fantastic debut from the talented E.D. Baker.

Straightening his smooth, green shoulders, he bowed from where his waist would have been if he'd had one. "I do apologize, Your Highness! If I had realized that you were such an exalted personage, I would never have made such churlish comments." I groaned and rolled my eyes. "Give me a break! I hate it when people talk that way!

This was a very nice book, although I thought "Once Upon A Curse" (book 3) was a bit better. But it was a great start to this wonderful series!

Fans of Dealing With Dragons will enjoy this series, both have similar wit. A brilliant twist on a classic fairy tale.

such a twist to the frog prince.

I loved this book so much when I read it. It's the perfect book for younger advanced readers. It's not inappropriate, but it's interesting and fun to read. It's definitely a higher reading level book. I would recommend it to any advanced reader in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. Also, even though it's a princess book, it's not in any way "girly".

good twist on the frog princess.

This was an excellent book! I loved this book so much that I just had to go and read the whole series (which was just as good as The Frog Princess!) I especially liked the ease with which I was able to connect with the main character, an ordinary girl who just happens to be born with royal blood. I recommend this book if you are looking for a nice fantasy book with a character who is easy to connect with and who will keep you laughing all the way through

This is a book on how a girl kisses a frog and turns into a frog!! Oh no something must be wrong. What a nice twist.

Jul 22, 2014

Princess Emeralda is incredibly clumsy, she brays like a donkey when she laughs, and she would rather spend time outdoors or learning magic from her witch-aunt Grassina than marry self-centered Prince Jorge. When she runs off to the nearby swamp, she meets "Frog" who, naturally, claims to be an enchanted prince and begs her for a spell-breaking kiss. But when she finally complies, something goes terribly wrong, and suddenly Emma is a green-skinned, pond-hopping frog. She and Eadric spend the rest of the book trying to undo the spells that have bewitched them, struggling to avoid a dragon, a frog-eating dog, and an inept angry witch along the way. When they are finally released from their enchantments, it's clear they will live a happy-if rather unconventional-life together.
