The Adventures of the Frog Prince by J.R. Barker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An unexpectedly delightful story that begins in fairy-tale fashion, setting the stage for the Prince of the Kingdom’s long-awaited choice of a wife from among the various Princesses, but soon skewing into utter hilarity (the reader will be exclaiming, “no, not really?!) followed by true empathy for the protagonist. I laughed fairly uproariously all through this tale, simply because it is so delightful-and what an imagination has this author, to so well view events from within the perspective of a frog!
I truly enjoyed, and will reread this story, as well as share it with my grandchildren. Even though this is described as a children’s story, any adult (with any sense of humour or heart) will benefit from it too. I hope it finds a wide audience among all ages!
