Once upon a time, there was a princess and a frog who became the best of friendsbut only after three rather bewildering nights of playing, eating, and sleeping. Retold with a comical twist by Jan Ormerod (this time it’s the frog who has become a princess) and perfectly captured by artist Emma Damon, this is a light-hearted, gently instructive tale of acceptance and friendship. Jan Ormerod has won numerous awards, including the coveted Kate Greenaway Medal; she has written and illustrated more than 50 works for children, including If You’re Happy and You Know It!, PeekABoo, Emily and Albert, and the Miss Mouse books.
