Donna Jo Napoli is the author of many books for children and young adults includingThe Magic Circle, Zel, and Stones in Water. She has won numerous awards, including the Golden Kite Award and the Sydney Taylor Award for Stones in Water. She lives in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania.
Gr. 3-6. Those funny "fawgs" are baaaaack! In this "second sequel" to The Prince of the Pond (1993), Napoli takes the tale a generation further. Frog Gracie knows there's something special about her best friend, Jimmy, who claims that his father is a human prince. In first-person voice, intrepid hopper Gracie relates her dangerous journey to rescue Jimmy after he is taken to the nearby palace to find a magic ring that has something to do with it all. As she hops along, she encounters a satisfyingly odd assortment of characters--among them, a hag turned into a crocodile (a hag-croc) and a male frog who is a fascinating conversationalist--and a bucketful of adages about frog behavior keeps the action jumping with surprises. Unlike the first book, this one is not illustrated, but extra leading gives the text a spacious look and bordered pages contribute to an appealing design. No warts on this convincing, funny, and cunning tale. Children are in for just plain fun. Julie Cummins
