The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker Review

Sunday, May 19, 2013


This is a cute little series called The Tales of the Frog Princess.. this book is the first in the series.  I loved it.  It is for middle school readers though.. it's not young adult.  Here is the goodreads description:


Princess Emeralda a.ka. Emma isn't exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh is more like a donkey's bray than tinkling bells, she trips over her own feet and she does not like Prince Jorge, whom her mother hopes she will marry. But if Emma ever thought to escape her troubles, she never expected it to happen by turning into a frog! When convinced to kiss a frog so he might return to being a prince, somehow the spell is reversed and Emma turns into a frog herself! Thus begins their adventure--a quest to return to human form.
Fascinating and hilarious characters ranging from a self-conscious but friendly bat to a surprisingly loyal snake and a wise green witch confirm that readers won't soon forget this madcap story. A fantastic debut from the talented E.D. Baker

I read this book for my Project Disney post on the movie The Princess and the Frog which is based off this book.  I hadn't heard of this series until I started working on Project Disney.  I just thought the movie was based off the Grimm story. 

This book is perfect for all ages.  It's clean and funny.  Emma becomes a frog and goes on many adventures with another frog, a snake and a bat!! Emma is not like a normal princess.  She laughs crazy, she is very clumsy, she doesn't want to marry a prince and she spends a lot of time at a swamp! She and her companions run into a fake witch and have to have battles to get away.  The book is really magical and I can't wait to read the other ones in the series for quick fluffy reads!!

  1. These books look so cute. They've been on my TBR list for quite awhile now, but I haven't gotten to them yet. I should push them up my list.

  3. I had no idea The Princess and the Frog movie is based off this book either. I know it's been on my TBR list for awhile. I recognized it immediately. I love how the MC is so different. Not your typical princess. Super cute.
