Staff Pick

This debut novel follows the adventures of fourteen-year-old Princess Emeralda and the talking frog she meets one day in the swamp. The frog begs her to give him a kiss so that he will turn back into Prince Eadric, his identity before an evil witch turned him into an amphibian. When the young royal obliges, she too is transformed into a frog, and the two leap off in search of the spell-casting witch to ask her to reverse her handiwork. Great fun!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Princess Emeralda a.k.a. Emma isn't exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh is more like a donkey's bray 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 troubles, 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 their 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 green witch confirm that readers won't soon forget this madcap story.

Synopsis:

Enter E.D. Baker's magical world in this first book of the Tales of the Frog Princess series.

This book had my attention right away, I was taken into this magical book from the start. This is one book I could read over and over. I love how the book leads up to a sweet romance. I can't wait to read the second one "Dragon's Breath".
