Description

One should be able to say of a princess "She was as good as she was beautiful," according to "The Art of Being a Princess" (third revised edition), which the almost-thirteen-year-old Princess Imogene is supposed to be reading. Not feeling particularly good, or all that beautiful, she heads for a nearby pond, where, unfortunately, a talking frog tricks her into kissing him. No prince appears, as one might expect. Instead, the princess turns into a frog herself Thus launches a funny, wonderfully spun fractured fairy tale in which Imogene wonders if she will be forever frogified.
