Princess Emeralda a.ka. Emma isn't exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh is more like a donkey's bray than tinkling bells, she trips over her own feet and she does not like Prince Jorge, whom her mother hopes she will marry.

This story is a twist on the old "frog prince" story. It is delightful and fun to read! Who would have every thought kissing a frog could lead to so many adventures!

I love this book! It puts a funny twist on the clasic fairy tale and still managed to keep that realistic quality of two people meeting for the first time!

A delightful (sort of New-Age) retelling of a standard fairy tale. Emeralda, usually called Emmy, isn't quite the standard prissy sort of princess. She's a little clumsy, not interested in castle politics, and pretty much permanently on the outs with the Queen, her mother. But she's brave, resourceful, and kind to animals. That has to count for something, doesn't it?

From back cover: I knelt on the ground at the edge of the pond. With a mighty leap, the frog landed on the ground beside me and puckered his lips.
"Wait just a minute!" I said, drawing back.
The frog looked distressed. "You haven't changed your mind, have you?"
"No, no, it's just that, well, here." Fumbling in the small pouch attached to the waist of my gown, I found an embroiderred handkerchief.
I reached out and gently patted the frog's mouth clean. "You had dried fly feet stuck to your lips," I said, shuddering.
"All right, let's try again."
This time the kiss went without a hitch.

fun fairy-tale spin off

It has a good idea behind it, and moderately good jokes, but the characters seem less mature than they should (though their maturity does increase as the series progresses) and the dialogue just isn't quite believable.

"Princess Emeralda a.k.a. Emma isn't exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh is more like a donkey's bray than tinkling bells, she trips over her own feet and she does NOT like Prince Jorge, whom her mother hopes she will marry. But if Emma ever thought to escape her troubles, she never expected it to happen by turning into a frog! When convinced to kiss a frog so he might return to being a prince, somehow the spell is reversed and Emma turns into a frog herself! Thus begins their adventure - a quest to return to human form.

Fascinating and hilarious characters ranging from a self-conscious but friendly bat to a surprisingly loyal snake and a wise green witch confirm that readers won't soon forget this madcap story."
