The Frog Princess

Authoress: E.D. Baker
Pages: 214
Genre: Children's Fiction

Condensed: Princess Emeralda is not your average princess. In fact she's terrible at being a princess and would rather spend her days chilling with her witch auntie or hanging out in the swamps behind the castle. Then one day while hiding from her mom she encounters a talking frog named Prince Eadric. One kiss later Emeralda's world is turned upside down when she finds she too is now a frog. This is the story of how Emeralda and Eadric tackle a pretty giant world trying to become humans again.

My take: It's not you Frog Princess. It's me. You're just to young for me. But I promise if I ever get a daughter or niece I will buy them the entire series.

Adventure-o-meter: Super light.
Kiddie-o-meter: Clean as a whistle. Safe for all ages.
Adult-o-meter: Best suited for young ones. Would make a great bed time story.

My rating: 3 stars

Noteable: There are 6 books in this series:

Worth-a-read?: Absolutely recommend these to any one with little girls.

Share worthy: "The tingling began in my fingers and toes, then spread up my arms and legs. A shiver ran up my spine, chased by a golden, fuzzy feelin. Suddenly, my head felt light and full of bubbles. A tremendous wind rushed past me, locking me to the ground. I covered my face with my arms, but my arms no longer felt real."

Final say: I love how her taste buds changed when she became a frog.


  1. I may have to pick this up for my daughters when they're old enough to sit still for chapter books.

  2. Is this the basis for the new Disney movie coming out?

    Great site!

  3. I read this book and enjoyed it, but I have to say Once Upon a Curse was my favorite in the series.

    Nice review! :)

  4. Dawn: No it's not. But the Disney one looks cute. It features the Bayou.

  5. Looks cute :) By the way, I was browsing through your list of reviews & I'm seriously impressed---so MANY! Happy Reading...bye!
