Reviews

"This debut novel follows the adventures of a 14-year-old princess and the talking frog she meets one day in a swamp," said PW. "The tale offers peppy dialogue and some comical scenes." Ages 8-up. (Oct.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Gr 4-6-In E.D. Baker's twist on the classic fairy tale (Bloomsbury, 2002), Princess Emeralda has quite an adventure when she kisses a prince-turned-frog and everything goes terribly awry. The book follows her exciting quest, along with the frog prince Eadric, to transform themselves back into their human selves. The text itself is weak, with poor story logic, many fruitless tangents, and excessive detail. However, the dialogue between the perky princess, her valiant but foolish prince, and some of the other odd characters they encounter is often genuinely funny. Narrator Katherine Kellgren produces a variety of voices that are well tailored to the characters and their personalities. This romantic comedy and non-violent adventure would appeal to youngsters fond of twisted fairy tales, but some of the jokes and sophisticated vocabulary will be beyond the intended audience.-Jenna Innes, Edmonton Public Library, Alberta, Canada Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
