Summary

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.

Entertaining and adventurous

I was amazed at the scope of this tale. A frog Prince story turned on its head with amazing characters, storyline and highly entertaining. I found it hard to put down most days and even ended up buying the book as well. An engaging set of characters that really helped you delve into the story. Sometimes things felt a little easy but at the same time kept things different. I love the take on druids.

a fairytale with a difference

I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this or not, but did, I enjoy some fairytales that have a nice twist to them, rather than the normal ones, I especially like that it's a princess rescuing a prince and a few others. if you enjoy adventure stories then you will probably enjoy this.

Brilliant story for children and adults alike

Would you consider the audio edition of Frogkisser! to be better than the print version?

I have not read the book but loved it being read to me.

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

Which character – as performed by Marisa Calin – was your favourite?

All of them. I thought she read the book beautifully.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely

Any additional comments?

I loved it.
