A heart warming tale of the frog prince adapting to life as a frog. The story goes from comedy to adventure to drama to suspense and finally sadness when the prince can no longer be a frog.

The description on the inside back cover tells of the author's research for the book. This becomes evident with the scientific tidbits dispersed throughout the book such as, "What on earth are you doing? No self-respecting amphibian drinks. We absorb water through our skin. If you're thirsty, take a swim."

A well written, educational fairy tale.
