Synopsis: A humorous and modern retelling of a popular fairy tale classic features the loyal and royal water-splashing frog, who, at the end of the adventure, resumes the form of a princess instead of a prince.

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 3?In this delightful retelling, the Queen orders her three sons to find wives. Bruno, who loves to eat, finds the baker's daughter, and Lucca, who changes clothes every two hours, finds the tailor's daughter. But Marco, who is a dreamer, finds only a frog. The Queen gives the prospective brides three tasks?to bake bread, to weave cloth, and to train a puppy. Each time Marco despairs that the frog will not be able to succeed, but magically and cleverly she does. Marco agrees to marry her, and she leaves the pond on a lily pad drawn by two snails. Once in the forest, the enchantment is broken, and the amphibian turns back into a princess. Cecil's witty retelling is based on Italian versions and "The Frog" from Andrew Lang's Violet Fairy Book (Dover, 1966), though it is much more entertaining than Lang's version. The beginning is similar to J. Patrick Lewis's The Frog Princess (Dial, 1994), but that tale is based on a Russian "Vasilisa/Baba Yaga" story. The watercolor illustrations are a perfect accompaniment to the text. Clark's depiction of the princes and their brides aptly show their personalities and are full of humor. The bright palette enlivens the visual experience and will draw children into the story. Appropriate for independent reading or reading aloud, this tale will make quite a splash!?Cheri Estes, Dorchester Road Regional Library, Charleston,
