LoveReading View on Prince Frog Face

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+ Andy Stanton describes Kaye Umansky as ‘wickedly funny’ and that’s very true of her version of The Frog Prince. Prince Valentine’s parents are keen for him to find himself a girlfriend, so he summons a load of princesses to the palace for interviews, judging them on things like their shoes, and whether they share his interest in collecting royal mugs. The process is interrupted when he insults a witch in the palace garden and she turns him into a frog, thereby teaching him a few important life lessons. It’s very funny – Umansky is unbeatable for comic dialogue - but underneath the humour is quite a sharp commentary on how we should treat other people. ~ Andrea Reece

Prince Frog Face Synopsis

Prince Valentine of Romantica is absolutely outraged - some raggedy old witch has had the audacity to turn him into a frog! A FROG! This just cannot be allowed to stand. He's far too busy interviewing princesses for the honoured post of his girlfriend to be hopping around and squatting in murky water. He had a points system and everything. But apparently he needs to learnmanners. Honestly, some people...

A side-splitting comedy caper, complete with Kaye Umansky's sparkling wit and spot-on humour, this is sure to be a hit with boys and girls of all ages.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
