Review

High-spirited romantic comedy. . . . Fans of Gail Carson Levine's Princess Tales should leap for it. (Kirkus Reviews on The Frog Princess)

As magically adventurous as fantasy can get. (VOYA on Dragon's Breath)

Baker's vividly imagined fantasy world . . . [is] irresistible and loaded with humor. (VOYA on Once Upon a Curse)

Kids will get a kick out of the hip Shrek vibe that Baker creates in this updated fairy tale. (School Library Journal on No Place for Magic)

No, this is not a story about Princess Emeralda and Prince Eadric.

This new story, which is a prequel to THE TALES OF THE FROG PRINCESS, visits Princess Emeralda's aunt....as a teenager!

Living in Greater Greensward with her mother, father, and sister, Chartreuse, Grassina is not expected to do much. Chartreuse was first born, which means she will be both Queen and Green Witch. All Grassina is expected to do is to marry a prince.

When the King gives their mother a bouquet of flowers the family curse turns her into a nasty hag and also disperses of her Green Witch title. Now Greater Greensward has no Green Witch to protect them.

While doing a meaningless task for her mother, Grassina hears word of werewolves invading towns and nearing Greater Greensward. With no Green Witch, who will stop them? Its up to magic-less Grassina, runaway Haywood, and a snake named Pippa to save the kingdom.

As a fan of THE TALES OF THE FROG PRINCESS, i thought this was a good prequel. The book reads smoothly and gives Grassina more personality than that which we already knew. If you read the books released before THE SALAMANDER SPELL you know the outcome, but nevertheless it's a good read.

If you have read the other books in E.D. Baker's seires the Frog Princess then you will love this book. It gives you a better discription of what happened durning Grassina's childhood. And if you are just starting this series then you would like to read this book first because it explains a lot of the relationships that are skippped over in the other books.

I like all of these books because they are cute clean reads that are appropriate for any age. If you haven't read the other books read this first. It was a little bittersweet at the end because young Grassina was so optimistic about the future, and if you've read the other books first you know how hard her life gets, but Baker makes everything turn out so lovely that it is a worthwhile series to read. Much better than wasting a day in front of t.v.

This series is a great read! My 10 year old daughter has not put my kindle down, as she keeps wanting to read the Frog Princess Tales and asks to read more. She will tell me little bits about the characters and what is happening to them. I LOVE the fact that it makes her want to read more and more.

A great book for any age girl who likes books with girl power and a little romance on the side. Another loveable book in baker's series. A fast read that's fun and imaginative and takes you to another time and place. Parents can feel good letting their kids read this book.
