Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The fabled amphibian meets with marital discord; according to PW, "stylized, sophisticated pictures add to the keen humor of this revisionist revelry." Ages 5-up.
Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-5-- As in The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (Viking, 1989), Scieszka offers another tongue-in-cheek "rest of the story," telling what happens after the Princess kissed the frog. Readers won't be surprised to learn that they do not live "happily ever after." In fact, they're downright miserable. He misses the pond; she's tired of him sticking out his tongue and hopping on the furniture. In desperation, the bug-eyed hero decides to find a witch who can turn him back into the happy frog he once was. Successfully surviving encounters with several sinister but dimwitted witches from other tales, he finally meets Cinderella's Fairy Godmother who tries to help, but the transformation is definitely NOT what he had in mind. As the clock strikes midnight, he returns to human form and hurries home to his beloved Princess where the tale ends unexpectedly, but indeed happily. Johnson's surreal illustrations are right on target for the offbeat story. Painted in deep, shadowy colors and expertly composed, they are filled with subtle and surprising humor that continually rewards viewers with laugh-out-loud visual treats. The overall design is clean and spacious, with figures and objects moving past the ragged borders of the pictures and across the pages, matching the verbal movement perfectly. Readers will relish the pleasure inherent in combining traditional fairy tale motifs with modern, everyday objects and actions. A winner.

"The Princess kissed the frog. He turned into a prince.And they lived happily ever after..." Well not really. The Princess nags; the Frog Prince has bad amphibian habits that drive her crazy and neither are living very happily. So the Frog Prince decides to go out and find a witch to turn him back into a frog. Along the way, he meets familiar characters from other stories and finds out that maybe life wasn't so bad after all, with the princess. In fact, upon returning home, the Frog Prince kisses the Princess and... This is a silly, irreverent story, told in hip language, with a wonderful twist at the end that will delight and amuse children of all ages. Steve Johnson's illustrations are marvelous and add just the right touch to compliment the story. Great fun for the entire family, The Frog Prince Continues is a story not to be missed.

It's 9PM. The kids are all bathed, jammied up, tucked in, and ready for their bedtime story. I've had a hard day and my powers of creative book selection are nonexistent. Do I go with critter books or Seuss? Neither - at least not since I found "The Frog Prince Continued" by Steve Johnson and Jon Scieszka. In what has to be one of the most original and entertaining books of any kind, the authors have managed to combine wacky graphics with wonderfully off-center fairy tale fragments to create a story that begs to read over and over. Ever since she kissed his "slimy frog lips", the Prince and Princess have been whining and nagging about married life and the poor Prince can see only one way out of the turmoil - to find a witch that can turn him back into a frog. His hilarious journey through all of fairy-tale witchdom in search of his amphibious ends simply begs to be supplied with your own creative voices. When he meets his match in the definitely blonde and ditzy godmother from Cinderella, his situation goes rapidly downhill. Does he live to hop another day? Will the princess take him back? The perfect happy ending will satisfy both you and your kids and will keep you reaching for this book time after time. If I had one wish, it would be for Steve and Jon to fracture another fairy tale in a so elegant and entertaining fashion

Format: Hardcover
With beautiful illustrations and a witty story, this book takes the phrase "happily ever after" and turns it into a fairy tale of its own. The frog prince, tired of his nagging wife, heads back into the forest to rediscover happiness. His encounters with witches from various legends bring him to the realization that he was better off at home.
This book makes a great gift for your significant other after you've had a fight.

It's exciting and funny and the illustrations are great! It's a good story for all ages. I am 8 years old and even though I love big books and "The Frog Prince Continued" is an easy book...it is GREAT! What people say about other books like "it's soggy at first" doesn't apply to this book. It just isn't the case with this book!

The Frog Prince, Continued

Written By: Jon Scieszka

Review Done By: Jenny Orr

"The Princess kissed the frog.

He turned into a prince,

And they lived happily ever after..."

Everyone knows the story of the frog prince, right? Princess kisses the frog, frog turns into prince, remember? The story continues in this fun picture book for kids. The frog prince is living with the beautiful princess, but they are far from living happily ever after. The princess and the prince are just too different. The prince wants to go down to the pond. The princess wants him to go out and slay a dragon. Complete opposites. So, one night, the prince decides to leave and find a witch that will turn him back into a frog.

The prince's journeys take him deep into the woods. After walking for a little while, he meets witch number one. He begs to be turned back into a frog. But the witch has other ideas. She said that since he is a prince, she must cast a nasty spell on him. After all, she doesn't want Sleeping Beauty to wake before her hundred years are up. But, before the witch can get a hold of him, the frog prince runs away, even deeper into the forest.

After having run for a little while longer, he spots a cottage. As you have probably guessed, witch number two is there. He begs the witch to turn him back into a frog. But the witch has other ideas. If he is a prince, he must eat a poison apple. After all, she doesn't want anyone rescuing Snow White. But before the witch can get a hold of him, he's off, running as fast as he can, ever deeper into the forest.

Running along the path, he comes to another cottage. And of course, outside, there is witch number three,outside gardening.

I was very entertained with this book. The message would not be one for children, but for adults that act like children. Anyone thinking of getting a divorce should read this book first. I got the message that the grass is always greener on the other side until you get to the other side.

The title speaks for itself. I always try to give a copy of FROG PRINCE CONTINUED to newlyweds. When the bloom is off the rose, it's a good book to have around.
