The Frog Prince Continued by Jon Scieszka
I personally love Jon Scieszka and his creative elaborations on the classic tales and the Frog Prince Continued didn't disappoint my expectations. This story continues on where the Frog Prince ends and reveals that the couples life isn't so "happily ever after". The Prince starts to miss his lifestyle of being a frog and grows bored with the Princess. He goes on a mission to find someone to return him to his original state and runs into a few familiar characters. After meeting the fairy godmother of Cindereala and being turned into a carrage as result of her failed attempt to turn him into a frog, he apreciates his live with the Princess and return home. In the end the couple does get their happily ever after ending by both turning into frogs. I loved this story and the intertwining of other fairytales into the plot line. Children and adults would both find this book to be humurous and fun. The illistrations were very detailed and added further expression to the characters. This book is a quick and fun read the I believe anyone can enjoy!
