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.
E. D. Baker makes her international debut with The Frog Princess. The mother of three, Ms. Baker has had many interesting jobs: teacher, parrot caretaker at a garden centre, and currently, as a member of the Red Cross Disaster Action Team, but her true love is writing. She lives in Maryland, USA.
元気な王女様の行動力に引きずられる王子様 2人の関係が楽しく ちょっぴり
This fantasy includes a variety of conventional magical characters and activities - talking animals, a good witch and a bad witch, a dragon, a giant, a swamp fairy, spells, a magical charm bracelet, a magical forest, and so on - some developed, others just mentioned. While some might criticize this as being "flat", I think these elements make the book easily accessible to children who may not take to Harry Potter right away. It takes less work on the part of the reader to imagine the magical world of the frog princess. I think that many children in the elementary grades would enjoy this take-off on the story of the frog prince. And although I haven't tried this yet, I believe that children as young as 4 or 5 would enjoy it as a read aloud. The frog princess herself, is a good role model for young girls, as she discovers her true self and becomes a confident young princess, who knows what she wants to do with her life.
