Synopsis

The Princess and the Frogs by Veronica Bartles

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.
