Summary

E. D. Baker scored international acclaim for her debut The Frog Princess, a Book Sense Children’s Pick. The Salamander’s Spell features sisters Chartreuse and Grassina in a tale of magic, humor and grave danger.

Grassina has always lived in the shadow of her perfect older sister, Chartreuse. But when a terrible spell leaves the Kingdom of Greater Greensward in great danger, it is Grassina who finds the magic to set things right. This hilarious prequel to The Tales of the Frog Princess series introduces new characters and brings back familiar fan favorites.

Another thrilling book in the series

This book is a great addition to the Frog Princess series. It really helps you understand Emma's aunt's childhood.

Tss

I did like the story but It was to slow and very predictable to me and I didn't care to much for the characters
