Princess Emeralda a.k.a. 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.

      My sister got this book from her library (at my request :)) and we are reading it together. The main character is Princess Emeralda and she is unlike the typical princess. She is not very lady like and does not like her suitor. Instead of the traditional tale in which the prince turns into a frog, the princess is the one who turns into one! She goes on the journey to turning back.

                  I loved this book! Princess Emma is a fun character with Eadric by her side. Five stars. P.S. There is some mushy parts!

                    It was a good book because it was a calm relaxing book to read over the summer. It has some action but also some funny parts.

                      This book is about a girl named Emma. Emma is a princess but was turned into a frog after she kissed a frog named Eadric. Eadric was turned into a frog by a witch and can only turn back to a human when a real princess kissed him. When Emma kissed Eadric, she was wearing a bracelet that her aunt Grassina gave her (Emma’s aunt Grassina is a witch, but a nice one). Eadric was supposed to turn back to a human but Emma’s bracelet reverses any spell a witch casts on Emma so the witch would find the spell bouncing back to the witch. Instead of Eadric turning back into human form, Emma turned into a frog. It is an amazing story with lots of curios adventures.
