Not satisfied being a frog, Pondlarker seeks a princess' kiss to fulfill his princely ambitions

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-- Pondlarker is the only frog in his family who still believes the old bedtime story his mother used to tell him, and he is determined to be turned into a prince by the kiss of a princess. When he sees a sign that says "Princess 4 miles," he goes off with great alacrity, only to find an old princess who has kissed millions of frogs and still hasn't found a prince who suits her. Just in time, Pondlarker decides that his parents are right: a frog is a fine thing to be. Gwynne's bold, garish cartoons are just right: members of royalty have insipidlooks on their faces, the frogs are having an exuberantly active and happy life together, and Pondlarker stands apart in his ridiculously hopeful prince outfit. This would be fun to read in conjunction with the original folktale to children who are just beginning to delight in the humor of spoof. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
