I really enjoyed reading this book. It was funny and light-hearted with wit and romance. The story-line is written well-enough for younger readers to be able to 'not get' some of the parts us older ones do and still tie it all together with a great fairytale story. If you enjoy reading books that put a new spin on some of the old classic plots, I highly recommend this one!
In one of the cutest re-writing of fairy tales I have read in awhile, Moore retells the story of the prince who is turned into a frog. After months of exhaustive searching, she finally kisses the right frog, he turns back into a prince and he isn't handsome, he is rather dorky-looking. Caroline sets the whole fairy tale world on it's ear when she refuses to marry him. A hilarous new look at an old story.
This was a really great twist to a classic fairy tale. A beautiful girl kisses a frog and up pops a prince. But he's a really dorky prince, not a great catch at all. There were also other add-ins of other fairy tales like Rapunzel, and Rumpelstiltskin. I did laugh throughout the book, and it had a feel good ending. Would have to read more of the author's writing.
Really enjoyed this book. Yet another fairy tale with lots of modern twists! Great read!
I first read "Bad Prince Charlie" And loved it so I found more by Mr. Moore and love have fallen in love with his writing. If you love humour and love fantasy read all of his books. This one I have already mailed out to my best friend was so good.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading this book! I had never heard of the author before, but after reading this, I plan on looking for more books by him. This story and the author's style of writing reminded me of "The Sword in the Stone" by T.H. White. There were a couple of times that I literally laughed out loud and then found someone that I could read the funny parts to just to share the laughter. If you enjoy fairy tales, then this is the book for you, complete with witches, frog princes, princesses, Rumpelstiltskin and Rapunzel!
Caroline kissed every frog in the swamp until she found the one that turned into a prince--only Prince Hal isn't the handsome specimen she expected to find. Unless she can learn to love the princely sum of his parts, it'll be unhappily ever after.
I really liked this book. THis was the first book I've read by him and I will definintly be reading more.
