Book Description

2 Sep 2002
Princess Emeralda isn't exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh sounds like a donkey's bray rather than tinkling bells, she trips over her own feet more often than she gracefully curtsies, and she hates the young Prince Jorge whom her mother hopes she will marry. But if Emeralda ever thought to escape from her frustrating life, she never expected it to happen by turning into a frog! This is a deliciously original and fast-paced fairy tale that turns the tables on the traditional frog-prince story, featuring a fascinating and hilarious cast of characters and starring a witty and unforgettable - princess.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 19 May 2003
Even though I'm not usually into the whole spin off fairy tale book this to my suprise was actually very good.
It is about a princess called Esmerelda(Emma), who hates being a princess, is not particularly beautiful,
does not get on at all with her mother(who is trying to marry her off to a big headed prince whom she despises)
and is only ever herself with her aunt a witch who is still mourning for her lost love who disappeared years ago. So one day Emma goes down to the swamp(where she knows her mother
or Prince Jorge would never go down to in a million years) and meets a talking frog who says hes a prince and asks her to kiss him. She says no way and goes back to the castle.
But then she starts to feel guilty and goes back to the swamp the next day to find the frog and kisses him.
And to her horror, gets turned into a frog herself!!
Will Emma be stuck as a Frog forever?!!
If you want to find out buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars frog princess 18 Aug 2012
By lowri
this is one of my all time favourite books ever! as a kid i read and fell in love with this book and as a 17 year old teenager i still can't help loving it! I would deffinatly recommend this book to anyone between the age of 9-17, i know thats a huge age difference but this book maybe childish but its amazing. i now own all the frog princess books :D don't think just because i read these books that it makes me ultra childish or simple, i am a reader of stephen king and dracula so its nice for me as an adult to escape all that for once and read a good old fairy tale

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically Magical 20 Aug 2011
This is another book that has been on my TBR pile for a very long time. I finished Princess Diaries part 3 whilst in my lunch break at work and had left book 4 at home, so I grabbed this from my tray and sat down with it.
I was halfway after 40 minutes so decided to bring it home with me to finish.
Princess Emeralda or Emma as she likes to be called is a real princess, although she doesn't act like one, her laugh is loud and invasive, she is clumsy and ungraceful. And she doesn't want to marry the man her mother has chosen for her. Her aunt is a Green Witch who is quite powerful, but Emma seems to make a mess of any spells she casts.
When out hiding from her suitor, Emma walks to the swamp, whilst there she runs into a frog. Shocked when it speaks to her she runs away. But the next day she is curious and goes back. The frog asks her for a kiss explaining he is a Prince under a witches curse. At first she doesn't believe him but then her mother announces that she is organizing Emma's wedding to stuck up Jorge, so Emma figures there isn't much to lose and so kisses the frog. This doesn't work out as planned either - instead of turning the Prince back, Emma ends up as a frog. Together they set out to find a way to break the spell.

I've only read one book by E.D Baker before and didn't really like it, but in this one I really liked her writing style and voice and felt myself pulled into the story. I knew a bit about the story before hand but not a lot, so I went in with an open mind.
I liked Emma, she was someone that I felt you could relate too. Not sure of herself or what she is meant to be. Always feeling like she is letting others down but with an inner strength.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Fabulous!!!! 13 July 2005
Princess Emeralda is not your exact vision of a princess. She is not very pretty and is so clumsy she even trips over her own two feet! On the day she finds out she is to wed the snobby Prince Jorge, she escapes to the swamp, where she meets a Frog. He asks her to kiss him, but she says "no!" as you would expect. But little does she know that when she kisses the frog that her life will be turned upside down...
An original tale that will make you laugh, and make you feel sad, this is a good read and will never fail to delight people of all ages.
