Overview

A delightfully funny reinvention of the classic fairy tale "The Frog Prince," from author Veronica Bartles and illustrator Sara Palacios.

Once upon a time there was a princess named Cassandra who had everything she could ever wish for...except a pet frog to be her best friend.

So when the Royal Pet Handler finds her the perfect little green frog with bumpy brown spots, Cassandra couldn't be happier. Until she gives her friend a good-night kiss and--WHOOSH --he turns into a prince

But princes aren't pets. Cassandra wants a frog

Soon her castle is overflowing with princes, and if Cassandra doesn't find a way to fix the situation, her overcrowded castle might burst at the seams--and she may never have a frog of her own.

Princess Cassandra wants a pet, and she has very specific criteria: it must be a swimmer, a jumper, match her favorite green dress, and at night, he will sit on my pillow and sing to me. A frog fits the bill perfectly, until Cassandra gives Froggy a goodnight kiss and he turns into a young prince who wants to get married right away. In fact, every single frog in the kingdom turns out to be a marriage-eager prince in disguise. Happily ever after reigns when the Princess comes across a prince who wants to remain an amphibian. First-time picture book author Bartles has a fun idea in mind, and Palacioss (the Marisol McDonald series) mixed-media pictures bring a breezy spirit to this fairy tale spoof. But the humor never gels, and the heroines imperiousness comes off as spoiled and snooty, as opposed to empowered: Princes arent pets! is her refrain, which may leave readers wondering why a prince cant be the best friend she so badly wants. Ages 48. Authors agent: Jessica Sinsheimer, Sarah Jane Freymann Literary. Illustrators agent: Kendra Marcus, Bookstop Literary. (Nov.)
