Tales of the Frog Princess
I actually read these a while ago, but am just now getting around to posting about them in here. I believe they’re considered young adult books, I’m not sure what the actual target age is for them. They’re really good books though. The author takes a fun twist to all the well known fairytales and such. Things are thrown in there so subtley that sometimes you’re not sure if it’s from a fairytale you know or not.
The first book, The Frog Princess, introduces us to the main characters and builds the story from there. The other books continue that story with new plots and all the characters you’ve grown to love. There are singing swords, dragons, fairies, witches, wizards (or warlocks – can’t remember which they call them), trolls, and all manner of mischief and adventure along the way.
Granted I’m well above the age range for these books, but I still enjoyed them immensely. They’re good, fun, light reading that left me feeling good when I was finished with them. It wasn’t anything to take too seriously and I didn’t have to really work to understand the book, which is nice sometimes when you just want to escape.
Highly recommended for people of all ages!
