This is a modern fairy tale for the tween girl crowd. Though it has a slow start, the story quickly picks up, and girls will likely read it in one sitting. It is humorous, well-written, and imaginative. Girls will relate to Emma's typical tween feelings of self-doubt and awkwardness. Kissing occurs (because how else can one turn into a frog and back again?) several times, and there is an element of romance, though very innocent. The vocabulary in this book might be hard for a reluctant reader. Fans of this book can look forward to reading the next book in the series, Dragon's Breath (Tales of the Frog Princess #2) .
