Prince Ribbit

Jonathan Emmett

Enchanted prince or just a plain old frog? Pucker up, princesses! There's only one way to find out . . .
Fairy tales are just stories--or so Princess Martha believes. But when her sisters meet a talking frog, they're convinced that giving him the royal treatment will turn him into Prince Charming. After all, that's what happens in their story books. Martha isn't so sure. The more she sees of Prince Ribbit, the more suspicious she becomes. Armed with the facts, Martha sets out to expose Prince Ribbit and prove to her sisters that "just because it's in a book doesn't mean it's true." But before "The End," Princess Martha might just learn that lesson for herself!
Jonathan Emmett's clever twist on the "The Frog Prince" pits a spunky, bespectacled princess against a sly amphibian to teach a charming lesson on the pitfalls of trusting everything you read.

Praise for this book

"A good-natured tale, glamorous enough to satisfy hardcore princess fans and nuanced enough for those who like a little depth in their fairy tales."
"Readers will take away a universally appealing lesson: it's fun to be clever."
Rich color and patterns reminiscent of tapestry or lace grace the digital cartoon art... [The ending] perfectly suits the story's repeated admonition... [an] entertaining read-aloud."
