Davey doesn’t believe in spells and fairy tales—until the day a strange blue-eyed frog named Amelia turns up in his pond. Amelia is really a princess, and in order to break the spell she’s under, she needs a kiss before two cycles of the moon pass. It looks as though Davey is the only boy who can help her. But he doesn’t want to kiss the frog until he’s had a chance to show her off to his friends, and the thought of kissing her at all makes him sick. In the meantime, he’ll have to take care of the bossy princess by keeping her away from his menacing little brother, Kevin. Can the princess convince Davey to do the right thing, or is she doomed to stay a frog forever?

Patricia Easton’s crackling, fast-paced chapter book puts a new spin on a beloved fairy tale. Mike Wohnouka’s ingenious black-and-white illustrations are guaranteed to elicit giggles and guffaws.
