Once upon a Curseby E. D. Baker
Synopses & Reviews
Many years ago a slighted fairy placed a curse on a beautiful young princess--a curse that caused her and all her female descendants to turn into mean, ugly witches if they ever touched a flower after turning sixteen. Now, Princess Emma, who is about to turn sixteen herself, is determined to break the spell once and for all. Emma travels back in time to the day the curse was placed on her ancestor in the hope of preventing the curse from being cast. Unfortunately she isn't successful in her efforts, but she does learn how to break it. Armed with this knowledge, Emma returns to her own time full of hope. But disaster ensues and Emma is about to give up completely--until true love shows itself in the most unexpected place of all.
With a bit of courage, a pinch of luck, and of course, a healthy dose of magic, Princess Emma charms her way through the third hilarious adventure in the Tales of the Frog Princess series.
The elements that make Baker's first two entries in this series so delightful are in full force here. Rich in details . . . irresistible and loaded with humor. A] brilliantly created world of magic and mayhem.-VOYAThe characters are likable, the dialogue is snappy, and the story is warmhearted and appealing . . . Emma's third adventure invites readers on a vacation to a good-natured, generous-hearted imaginary land.-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Emma, who is both a princess and a powerful witch, must travel back in time to end a family curse or risk losing her true love, Prince Eadric, forever.
