A rollicking fantasy-adventure by the master of children's speculative fiction.
Talking dogs. Mischievous wizards. An evil stepstepfather. Loads and loads of toads. Such is the life of a Frogkisser.
Princess Anya needs to see a wizard about a frog. It's not her frog; it's her sister's. And it's not a frog; it's actually a prince. A prince who was once in love with Anya's sister but has now been turned into a frog by their evil stepstepfather. And Anya has made a 'sister promise' that she will find a way to return Prince Denholm to human form....
So begins an exciting, hilarious, irreverent quest through the Kingdom of Trallonia and out the other side, in a fantastical tale for all ages, full of laughs and danger, surprises and delights, and an immense population of frogs.
"Nix takes inspiration from classics and improves on them.... Great fun with heart." (Kirkus)
"[A] beautifully told romp of a fairy tale.... Wise and wondrous." (Holly Black, best-selling author of The Spiderwick Chronicles)

Brilliant story for children and adults alike
I have not read the book but loved it being read to me.
The Royal Dog who was just wonderful closely followed by the princess. Both of them were well thought out characters who were brought to life by the narrator and the author.
All of them. I thought she read the book beautifully.
I loved it.
