Frumpy, fortyish storyteller Buffy Murphy has already been unceremoniously dumped by a toad of an ex-husband. The last thing she needs is another needy male passing himself off as an enchanted prince. And since the talking frog she carries home from a Pennsylvania pond could be far more valuable to her in his froggy form, she blithely ignores his pleas for a spell-breaking kiss. Her beautiful teenage princess, Emily, however, is far more easily seduced - though Buffy has tried to warn her rebellious daughter where a simple kiss can lead. And right now, it is leading them both - and a hunky blond former amphibian named Prince Adamus - to the mall. For somewhere between the Gap and The Limited lies the magical realm of Fair Peril - where everything is itself yet something other, where wishes become punishments...and where only a dutiful mother's considerable power of storytelling can salvage a child's future and a daughter's love.
