The Frog Prince is a classic retelling of this story with a copy of the original included. Long ago in a magical kingdom, the Prince Gerit begs a woman to help him out of the water with making promises to her that he takes back after getting free. The woman being a witch, turns him into a frog for doing that to teach him a lesson and tells him the only way to become human again is to kiss a Princess 3 times on the lips. As he adjusts to being a frog, he sets out to find a Princess but once he gets there, the Princess doesn't want anything to do with him being that he is a frog.

With Gerit at a standstill of what to do, he forces the princess to do what he wants to do. With the both of them spending time with each other, they soon come to love each other's company. It takes the Princess of learning that she is forced to marry someone that she doesn't like to make things right with Gerit.

This was a quick read for me but I loved it! I so enjoyed this story rather than the original just due to the simple fact that this story is much more drawn out and more details than what was originally told. This could be a great book for kids to teach them to not make promises that they can't keep or anyone who loves classic retelling's of folktales!!

Thank You to Mike Klaassen for writing a great story in this new collection of yours and I so can't wait to see what is to come next!!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Book Unleashed!
