Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Kings youngest daughter spends her days dressed in beautiful gowns and playing with her favorite golden ball. But when she loses her ball in a dark, mossy pond, she eagerly makes a deal with a green frog for its return—a deal she refuses to uphold, until the King insists that his young daughter make good on her promise. 
 
This Brothers Grimm tale about an evil witchs spell has enchanted readers since it was written in the early 1800s. With ethereal illustrations cast in varying shades of emerald, Christian Hager adds magic to this classic.

• Part of NorthSouth Books program of classic fairy tales, featuring the original stories of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen…never watered down or “Disney-fied” and always paired with tremendous art from celebrated European illustrators.
• The Frog Prince is one of Grimms most beloved tales.
• The larger theme of Frog Prince, to look beyond outward appearance, is timely and important.

Synopsis:

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were born in Germany in the 1780s. They were scholars and are best known today for their captivating fairy tales.
 
Christian Hager is an illustrator and toy designer. He studied graphic design at the Art School Lübeck in Germany. He also teaches illustration.

Synopsis:

“ONCE, IN OLDEN TIMES, when wishes still had power, there lived a king. All of his daughters were beautiful, but the youngest was the loveliest of all. The sun itself, which sees so much, was dazzled when its light shone on her face.”
     

Thus begins The Frog Prince, the classic fairy tale, best known in the version set down by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. When a young princess meets a frog after she drops her favorite toy into a well, she thoughtlessly makes a promise to love him if he retrieves it. But once the frog fetches her toy, she runs away—until the king insists that she keeps her word. Frightened and repulsed by the frog, she is forced to let him share her meal and must then let him share her room
