The Frog Prince Continued

The Frog Prince Continued
by Jon Scieszka
Illustrated by Steve Johnson

Genre: Picture book, Fractured Fairy Tale

Synopsis:  After the Princess kissed the frog, he turned into a handsome prince and they lived happily ever after... or did they? The Princess can't stand the Prince's froggy habits - the way he hops around on the furniture, or sneaks off to the lily pond. The Prince is unhappy, too, and decides that it would be best if he were changed back to a frog. But finding a witch who will do the job is harder than he expects. They all seem to have other spells in mind...
from GoodReads

Review:  This was a silly book about how the frog prince wanted to turn back into the frog because he was unhappy because happily ever after didn't mean happily ever after.  He found witches from other stories-Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, and Cinderella.  I liked that the illustrator made the Frog Prince look a little like a frog in his drawings.  The illustrations are a little dark and could potentially be scary but my kids didn't mind at all.

Rating: 4 stars
