Hilarious fairy-tail where a prince is turned in to a frog by some unknown person after he was meant to chose a bride. This story is well written and full of humour as the frog sets off to find out who turned him into a frog, and why. The cover gives the impression that the book is for young children, but it's probably better suited to older readers because of the large words and long sentences. Plus the lisp in the dialogue of one of the characters would be a little hard for five to seven year-olds to figure out. However, if it was read to them by someone older, they'd laugh out loud and so would the reader. This book would be perfect for kids over eight, teens, and adults who enjoy fairy-tails. I enjoyed reading it and liked how the author threw in a few morals here and there without being obvious. There's many a twist and turn and the ending was a surprise to me. J. R. Barker has a great way with words and I look forward to reading more of her work.
