The Frog Prince Continued

Publisher: Penguin

Review

After the Princess kissed the frog, he turned into a handsome prince, and they lived happily ever after… or did they? This continuation of the favourite fairy-tale reveals what really happened after the happy ending - the Princess can't stand the Prince's froggy habits, and starts to wish she had never kissed his 'froggy lips' in the first place!

The Prince decides they would both be better off if he were changed back into a frog again, but persuading a witch to reverse the spell proves a little more difficult than he at first anticipates.

Steve Johnson's quirky and humorous illustrations will delight young readers, depicting the characters breaking out of the ragged edges of the storybook pages, escaping the conventions of the fairytale to reach a new happy ending of a very different kind in this enjoyably anarchic take on a traditional tale.
