I've enjoyed the Tales of the Frog Princess series ever since I read them back shortly after they were first published so I was thrilled to hear that there was another book coming out in the series! The Frog Princess Returns doesn't disappoint! Fans of the series will love this latest story.
While it didn't have that extra little pizzazz I need for a 5-star rating, it's a strong 4.5. There's intrigue, secrets, mystery, fairies, dragons, and adventure. What more could you want in a story?
All of our favorite characters have returned and we've added a few new people, such as Princess Adara who's on a mission. The characters are well-developed, fun, and easy to like. The settings are magical with just enough descriptions that you can imagine them easily.
The story line moves along at a decent pace and there's a twist in the end that even though I didn't necessarily like the character to begin with, I didn't see the twist coming!
If you've read the series before now, this does not take place at the end of the series. This takes place earlier in the series. Emma and Eadric aren't married yet, but they've had some of their early adventures. I'd place it right around the time of book three.
It's a great addition to the series and whether you're finding this series for the first time or are just excited about the new story, I highly recommend this one! So much fun!

Princess Emma hardly has time to react to this strange arrival when fairies begin appearing and asking for her help. With a little investigation, Princess Emma discovers that the Fairy Queen has disappeared. The fairies believe she has “faded away” (the fairy version of died), so three new fairies are competing to take her place.
Princess Emma, Prince Eadric, the “long-lost cousin,” and a handful of fairies, set off on a search for the Fairy Queen. While she is interviewing dragons, flying a magic carpet, and outsmarting fairy magic to find the Fairy Queen, Princess Emma must still figure out what the “long-lost cousin” is really up to. It’s a busy couple of days. The book flew by (no pun intended) and was engaging and enjoyable from start to finish.
We have never read any of the other books in this series, but we have read and enjoyed some of Ms. Baker’s other books, such as the Magic Animal Rescue Series. Jumping into the series at Book 9 was no problem. The book worked very well as a stand-alone story, and we did not ever feel lost or wish we had read the other books first. When Ms. Baker felt background was needed to explain (or remind readers) how Princess Emma met certain characters, she gave it in just a few sentences.
I received an advance reader copy of The Frog Princess Returns in exchange for my unbiased review of the book.
First, lovely Princess Adara arrives from Lower Muckworthy and tries to steal Eadric away from Emma.
Second, the fairy queen has disappeared and those campaigning to be the new fairy queen are causing dissension among the fairies. Emma, Eadric, with tagalong Adara set off on an adventure to find the fairy queen and restore order to the fairies. They are also trying very hard to discourage Adara in her plans to steal Eadric away.
This was a fun story filled with entertaining characters and situations. Fans of earlier books in the series will certainly enjoy this one too.
The Frog Princess Returns did not disappoint! Not at all. It had the same feel as the original, with a cast of silly but endearing characters, great lessons for young readers, and the charm that Baker has always filled her books with. And it was so great to be back in Emma's story again. The later books in the series follow some different characters, but The Frog Princess started out following Princess Emma and she was always the star of the show for me. Reading The Frog Princess Returns, it was like no time at all had passed and I was able to go back to a place that I didn't even realize I had been missing.
I definitely recommend The Frog Princess Returns, as well as the first eight books in the series, to any middle-grade readers who love fantasy, and definitely to older readers who loved this series when they were younger!
