Frankly, I Never Wanted to Kiss Anybody!

Frankly, I Never Wanted to Kiss Anybody!
The Story of The Frog Prince
Nancy Loewen
Everyone knows that the frog needs a kiss from a beautiful princess to turn back into a prince. But did you know that the frog didn't really want a kiss? Prince Puckett is turned into a frog by Hank's mom so he doesn't win the championship baseball game. Now he's being forced to kiss a princess if he wants to play his beloved baseball again. Prince decides he loves being a frog. And he's going to stay that way if it means he has to kiss a girl to turn back into a boy. But one day an opportunity to kiss a princess falls into his lap. He can't miss the chance to turn back into a baseball playing boy.

The illustrations are bright, colorful, and hilarious. They play a large part in telling the story. The story moves along quickly and captures the reader's attention with the details and amusing plot. Children will love the twist to the classical story. Parents and teachers will love the resources at the back of the book. At the back of the book there are questions for discussion, a glossary, a list of books for further reading, internet sites, and more books in the series.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
