Frogged Hardcover - 2013

by Vivian Vande Velde

From Edgar Award–winning author Vivian Vande Velde comes a new middle-grade novel: a fresh and funny twist on the fairy tale "The Princess and the Frog" in which Princess Imogene kisses a frog to break the spell he’s under--and gets turned into a frog herself!


Summary

One should be able to say of a princess “She was as good as she was beautiful,” according to The Art of Being a Princess (third revised edition), which the almost-thirteen-year-old Princess Imogene is supposed to be reading. Not feeling particularly good, or all that beautiful, she heads for a nearby pond, where, unfortunately, a talking frog tricks her into kissing him. No prince appears, as one might expect. Instead, the princess turns into a frog herself! Thus launches a funny, wonderfully spun fractured fairy tale in which Imogene wonders if she will be forever frogified.
