Prince of A Frog (2015)

Prince of a Frog. Jackie Urbanovic. 2015. [May] Scholastic.  32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence:  Once, in a faraway pond, lived a frog named Hopper who loved to play. He crooned tunes, but the fish thought he was off scale. He kicked like a pro, but the ducks thought he was quackers. Even the herons thought he was too odd to eat. Hopper just didn't fit in.

Premise/Plot: Hopper the frog doesn't fit in at the pond. He decides to leave the pond after listening to a turtle's advice. The turtle had spoken of a certain frog who was really a prince in disguise. She had told of a magical kiss that could transform him into someone "charming, brave, and loved." The frog heads off to find the princess. But his journey to his princess, well, it won't be quick and easy. And the turtle never spoke a word about the dangers of life away from the pond. (This book has a fox!) The frog may not have found his princess, but he found something better--a true friend.

My thoughts: Adorable! I loved the dog, Princess. I loved seeing these two become friends. I especially loved the illustration of them singing together. Overall, this is a sweet book that is so easy to love.
