Princess Emma will do just about anything to get out of marrying the selfcentered Prince Jorge. So when she meets a frog named Eadric who claims-of course-to be a prince, she decides to give him a kiss and see what happens. Bad idea. The frog stays a frog, and worse still, Emma turns into a frog herself. It turns out only the person who cast the spell can break it, so Emma and Eadric are soon hopping along trying to find the witch who can make them human again. This clever twist on the classic fairy tale is full of good-natured fun and romance.

"While this twist on the fairy tale "The Frog Prince" is well read by Katherine Kellgren, she sounds too old for 14-year-old Emma. She is convincing as Aunt Christine and other adult witches and at the story's detailed look into a frog's world, including the tastiness of various bugs and descriptions of a frog's slimy skin. As Kellgren successfully contrasts Emma's awkwardness as a princess with her gracefulness as a frog, we grow to appreciate the character's wits and adaptability. Kellgren's delivery of the ending is bouncy as everyone is turned back into humans and lives happily ever after. A.G.H. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
