Blythe is the middle child and feels like no one really sees her. Her fiancé seems just like the rest of them. He's arrogant and never asks about her, only himself. She worries that she'll always remain unnoticed. Until one day she meets a talking frog by the pond. He claims to be a prince under an enchantment.
What follows is a short and sweet story about overcoming first impressions, and finding that happily ever after kind of love. I've read the rest of Jenni James' fairytale series, and this ranks in my top three choices (along with Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella). In fairytales we often see the instant love at first sight kind of magic. In the Frog Prince, we see characters who come to know one another, fight with one another, tease each other, and confide in one another. There was enough development for me to believe that they fell in love. And I loved the differences that Jenni James made to the story (like how Nolan chose the enchantment as opposed to being cursed with it). The Frog Prince is definitely worth the $2.99!
Content: squeaky clean
Recommended for fairytale fans
I remember the Muppets doing the story when I was about 5, with a pretty witch and a crystal ball on a stick. Then the witch was ugly and the frog was a guy - That's it. I also thought the girl hurled the frog at the wall, but that didn't happen here. Obviously the story didn't make that much of an impression on me. So the story is pretty new for me.
Apparently it's a bit new to the fairy tale as well, because here the prince chooses to disguise himself as the frog. That hasn't been done before.
Jenni James writes amazing books Her re-telling of Beauty and the Beast is way up there in my mind as one of the best.
Here's what does it for me:
The characters are easy to believe and like, even in a relatively short book. You feel you know them in a short space of words.
But - the dialogue is out-of-the-ballmark great. It's so witty. And English. Even when the characters or Ms. James aren't. The dialogue makes the books so much fun. I think Jenni James could write for film or TV.
I really loved it how Blyth's mother and brothers took it as perfectly normal for a frog to talk. And drink tea (they really are more coffee-oriented. I read that on the internet so it must be true).I also loved that she almost kissed him WAY before he had a chance to get to know her and how he got himself out of that one.
I will say that, after reading this book, I do not want a frog as a pet. No, I would be all pissed off that it didn't talk and it would just stick that frog tongue in the air all the time. But maybe it would come in handy if we got flies.
However, even if we don't get a frog or flies I will definitely still be buying Jenni James' books>
I have been subscribing to bookbub for quite a while now and was notified that this story was free to purchase on kindle. With the positive reviews about this books on goodreads and here in amazon and of those catchy cover, this story just won me over. I was so excited, that's why I decided to read it right after downloading it..
I've never read fairytale themed stories before so it didn't surprised me on the words this book used and how the sentences were constructed. I was still adjusting with the story until I've got the gripped on it when I reached the third page. After that part, everything just seems so entertaining. I love the idea of starting this story with those quite funny or should I say hilarious conversation between the Prince and his mother. Deym, that instance, I know this story wouldn't give me a hard time finishing it. And woolah! I just finished it in just one sitting.
I'm not really that familiar with The Frog Prince by the Brothers Grimm, but I know that the frog will transform into a Prince once the Princess kiss him. Like other fairytale stories, this book is kinda cliche. Isn't really my liking but it entertained me. I love the goofiness of the main characters especially the Queens, lol.
The main thing that I didn't like about this story was the conflict part. It was kinda questionable and it sounded a bit corny for my taste. But overall, this book is still a good read.
