I like children's books and I am not even going to invent an excuse for reading this one. I read it because I wanted to. There.I read it because I wanted to read a story about a princess who kisses a frog. Things went slighlty wrong and the frog prince didn't turn into a human prince, instead the princess turn into a frog.And then they have a lot of adventures and epiphanies.I liked how the frog prince was bent on saving and protecting the princess but somehow was always either asleep or not aro [...]
Rating:(late review)The Frog Princess is one of those books that I read at the library just because I found it, loved, and then picked up every other book by the author. High recommendation for middle/elementary schoolers who love witty fantasy books! :)
Princess Emerelda is not an ordinary princess at all. Her lagh is more like a croak, she is clumbsy, and dislikes being a princess. Her role model is her Aunt Grassina who is currently THE GREEN WITCH so she is also a witch in training.On one of her walks to the river she comes across a talking otter who is supposibly a prince of cource you know how it goes she gives him a kiss to turn him back into a prince, but what you don't know is that instead of turning the frog into a prince she turns int [...]
The Frog Princess is one of my sister’s favourite comfort-reads, so it was the first thing she thought to recommend when I had a reading challenge prompt to read something recommended by a family member. It takes a generic medieval-ish setting (castles, royalty, witches), and the usual Frog Prince story, and gives it a little twist to complicate it. If you’ve seen Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, you know the basic twist — apparently, the film was somewhat based on this book, though m [...]
Ages: 12-100+Princess Emma would do nearly anything to get out of meeting with the pompous Prince Jorge. So when he comes for a visit, she hides out in the swamp and meets a frog that promises he's really a prince. Emma eventually agrees to kiss him so that he can regain his true form. Neither of them were prepared for her to turn into a frog instead. Emma soon learns that a frog's life, while it has its own rewards, is one fraught with danger. Outsmarting a witch that wants their toes and tongu [...]
Would it surprise you if I told you that I read this just because I felt like it? No? Good. That means you know my reading style well! I love Middle Grade, I love fairy tales, and I can't resist anything that has a princess involved, so this book was something perfect for a quick read.I loved the fact that Princess Emeralda was a "I can do it myself" kind of girl, and that situations allowed her to do just that. I also very much appreciated the adorable twist that E.D. Baker put on the whole fro [...]
"Bersediakah kau mendapat kehormatan untuk menciumku?""Maaf, aku tidak tertarik mencium katak! "Lahir sebagai seorang putri tidak secara otomatis menjadikan Putri Emeralda seorang gadis yang anggun dan penuh percaya diri. Ia begitu kikuk di situasi-situasi sosial serta takut berbicara di depan umum. Sementara Pangeran Jorge begitu anggun, tampan dan egois. Wajar jika Emeralda merasa heran mengetahui mereka dijodohkan, tidak ada persamaan diantara mereka. Agar bisa menghindari perjodohan, Putri E [...]
Listened to this expanded fairy tale in the car on a road trip with the grandkids (girl and boy aged 9 & 11), and it was enjoyed by all. First of a series, 5 1/2 hrs long in audio form.
This book has a great idea behind it. It's a shame that the writing is so clumsy, and that its characters range from blah to toxically unlikeable. This, I'd have to blame on the stilted, impressively awful dialogue.I find it mystifying that some people have said that the vocabulary seems "above" or "beyond" the target audience. Maybe I'm a genius of vocabulary or something, but I thought that it was below the level of other books such as Redwall or even Fablehaven. Nothing against those people w [...]
The Frog Princess is the first in a series of eight books! I have read this at least three times and just finished the fourth read!You know, it was better than all the other times I have read this book!In this story, Princess Emma goes into the swamp by her castle because she loves to explore it! The day the story begins, she is there as a way of avoiding her suitor, Prince Jorge (whom she absolutely deplores)! Little does she know that she will meet the love, I mean the frog . of her dreams!Pri [...]
A few days ago,I finshed reading an incredible story called, The Frog Princess. The book by E.D. Baker takes place in an enchanted kingdom. Emma, the main character, kisses a frog who claims he is a prince, his name was Eadric. There were many bumps along the way for Emma and Eadric. For example, Emma kissed Eadric and turned herself into a frog! In order to turn the both of them back they needed to find the witch who put the spell on Eadric. They also met many new friends like Li'l Stinker, a b [...]
3.8/5this was my favorite series in late elementary school, so when the new editions were put on book outlet i couldn't pass up. i'm so glad that i genuinely enjoyed this book the second time around, instead of being irritated/bored/embarrassed i ever liked it. this book is cute and smart and fun, and such a unique and more girl-powery twist on a traditional fairytale. i'm very glad i read these books in elementary school, though i'm not sure if i want to reread the rest of the series. (it is st [...]
Princess Emma believes she is the worst princess and witch in all of Greater Greensward, and when she is told she has to marry a shellfish prince she runs of into a swamp only to find a frog who claims he is a prince and a kiss from her would turn him human again. But after a kiss from the prince she turns into a frog. So they go off on an adventure to turn human again!They make Eadric look like a pig in some parts yet in other parts he's sweet as can be. I recommend this book to girls who are i [...]
This would be perfect for a younger reader. Its a fun take on a traditional fairy tale, and Baker has a fun sense of humor. It would definitely be great for 8 years up and older, as the tone is pretty innocent. I would also recommend it to people who are fans of Ella Enchanted, where the fairy tale is turned on its head in a way that makes the girl more active in the story.I think I hit this one a little late, which is why its three stars for me, but I would definitely give it to a younger reade [...]
I love this book since I was little so I can't give it less than five stars, even with the little things that annoy me. I'm guessing this is E. D. Baker's first book (or one of the first ones) because of the speed of the plot. Hm, not sure about how to explain this. But the rhythm of the story is really quick, without a big development or explanations. It reminds me of my first stories. Nothing wrong with that, just pointing out my thoughts about it. It's always a pleasure to read it again.
This was such a cute read and it brought me back to days where romance was actually readable. Love stories doesn't have to involve the guy leaving you because he fears for you, nor the fact that you are a loser that gets swept off your feet by your handsome, "mysterious" lover. That's cheesy.When everything use to be simple and sweet, I actually enjoy the adventure-love stories, foe example this one.
This book was about Emma, a princess who's told to marry Prince Jorge which which she doesn't want to, so she runs away and kisses a frog who says he's Prince Eadric and Emma turns into a frog too. Both Emma and Eadric go through lots of stuff together and in the end everything goes alright. It made me feel happy that because everything went alright. I learned that u can do lots of stuff if you work together. I would recommend this book to everybody cause it's a fun book.
I adored this series when I was very little -- around 2nd and 3rd grade. ;)
Very good series for all girls! I LOVED it!
Great example of a fresh fairy tale, funny and charming charactersI haven't tried any E. D. Baker before, though I've seen lots of these books in the library. I finally tried this on audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed the easy listen. It's not one I think my son (aged 6) will enjoy, being, not only about a princess, but about (eurgh!) kissing, getting married, and boy-girl relationships. Emerelda (Emma) is the princess of the title, who does NOT want to get married as her mother expects, or become [...]
The last Time I read this I must have been 12 or 13ez that's a decade ago, I'm so old ^.^ I had bought one of the books in the series and then realized it was number 3 instead of this one, I read it anyway and loved it so I went to the library and toke out the whole series and loved it. The Frog Princess is about an awkward princess who meets a frog prince, she kisses him and turns into a frog herself. This is definitely one of my favorite retellings of the Frog Prince, its original, cute and ha [...]
My ten year old daughter loves the books in this series and suggested that I read them, so I began reading the first one. . . My thoughts for the first 100 pages were mostly that I was getting too old to enjoy this kind of fiction. Then, the story improved and I ended up enjoying it. Emalee has already asked me to read the next one so we "can talk about it." :-)
I read this series at the library a few years back and I LOVED it! The Frog Princess is an amazing book. You fall right in love with the main characters, Emma and Eadric. The book left me wanting more- and there is more! I would defiantly recommend this book- in fact, if you are reading this you probably are considering this book or are my friend- so read it!
I liked the book more than the movie :)
(Probably 3.5, if I'm being completely honest, but it was pretty fun and overall painless so I bumped it up a bit.)Emeralda is a princess, but being a princess isn't all it's cracked up to be. Faced with the unpleasant prospect of being forced to marry the self-absorbed (and ladies' shoe-obsessed) Prince Jorge, she finds an unlikely confidante in a frog in the nearby swamp who claims to be an enchanted prince himself. Emma decides to finally give into his relentless requests to kiss him, but for [...]
I picked this one up on Monday when I was bored out of my mind. I couldn't go to the book store that morning, and I had this book just sitting in my closet. I remembered how much I had adored this series when I was a little kid, so I picked up the book and began to read. Princess Emeralda (Emma for short) is the princess, and sole heir, of her kingdom, Greater Greensward. Emma is no normal princess, and she would much rather spend time in the swamp that's right next to her castle than doting on [...]
This is another book that has been on my TBR pile for a very long time. I finished Princess Diaries part 3 whilst in my lunch break at work and had left book 4 at home, so I grabbed this from my tray and sat down with it. I was halfway after 40 minutes so decided to bring it home with me to finish.Princess Emeralda or Emma as she likes to be called is a real princess, although she doesn't act like one, her laugh is loud and invasive, she is clumsy and ungraceful. And she doesn't want to marry th [...]
The Frog Princess is a re-telling of yes, you've guessed it, The Frog Prince. In case you don't know the story (after all, the Disney Movie Version is new, and is also a retelling), here's how it goes:A princess loses her golden ball (which means she's probably a child), a frog promises to get her golden ball back for her if she'll take him in, let him eat from her dish and kiss him. She agrees, breaks her promise, but the frog finds her anyway (scary). And her dad makes her carry out her promis [...]
The best word I can use to describe this book is simply CUTE.It succeeds at being a cute series opener and a charming little "royalty turned into frogs/talking animals" magicy adventure, but adds little else. Emma was a likable main character and I was interested in her and her family curse (which we don't learn about until near the end -- an issue I will get into in the next paragraph) enough to want to read the rest of this series. My biggest problem with this book is its pacing. Like, for plo [...]
