About the Author
Veronica Bartles grew up in Wyoming and currently lives in Maryland with her family. As the second of eight children and the mother of four, Veronica is no stranger to the ups and downs of sibling relationships. She uses this insight to write stories about siblings who mostly love each other, even while they're driving one another crazy. When Veronica's not writing or lost in the pages of her newest favorite book, she enjoys creating delicious desserts, exploring new places, and knitting with recycled materials.

One day, the Princess kisses a scraggly Prince, and he turns back into a Frog! That's just what the Princess wanted. And they were friends happily ever after.
This is much more healthy a fairy tale than teaching girls all they need is a Prince to make them happy. We've seen that fairy tale go south too many times before. 3.5 stars
