The Frog Princess Returns is a book that E.D. Baker wrote just recently that goes back and tells us about the year in between The Frog Princess and Dragon’s Breath. I was so thrilled to see that E.D. Baker had written another book about Emma and Eadric and I was so so happy that I was finally going to find out what happened in the time between the first two books of the series. The question had been on my mind for years. Even though this book is written much later than the first books of the series it still has the same charm as the older books do and I was able to dive into the world of Greater Greensward quickly and without any hinderance. I am glad that the plot of this book does not really have anything to do with the rest of the preexisting series and it stands alone as a companion book of sorts. In this book Emma and Eadric face the issue of a mysterious princess showing up and trying to force them apart. While Emma’s family is taking care of the issue of the girl, Emma and Eadric are tasked by fairies to try and find their queen. This book has all the hints and marks of the classic Frog Princess books and I enjoyed every second of it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the Frog Princess series and even to people who aren’t. This book is a well written addition to a fantastic series.

It was good but not great. Definitely not the best in the series.

I absolutely loved reading E.D. Baker's The Frog Princess series when I was growing up. Those books were always so funny and full of magic, great for fans of Gail Carson Levine. I was over to moon to find out that, fifteen years after The Frog Princess was published, Emma and Eadric were getting a new story! And yes, even though I read the original books years ago and they're definitely intended for a much younger audience, I couldn't wait to revisit the magical world I'd grown up with! The Frog Princess Returns did not disappoint! Not at all. It had the same feel as the original, with a cast of silly but endearing characters, great lessons for young readers, and the charm that Baker has always filled her books with. And it was so great to be back in Emma's story again. The later books in the series follow some different characters, but The Frog Princess started out following Princess Emma and she was always the star of the show for me. Reading The Frog Princess Returns, it was like no time at all had passed and I was able to go back to a place that I didn't even realize I had been missing. I definitely recommend The Frog Princess Returns, as well as the first eight books in the series, to any middle-grade readers who love fantasy, and definitely to older readers who loved this series when they were younger!

4.5 out of 5 stars rounded up. I've enjoyed the Tales of the Frog Princess series ever since I read them back shortly after they were first published so I was thrilled to hear that there was another book coming out in the series! The Frog Princess Returns doesn't disappoint! Fans of the series will love this latest story. While it didn't have that extra little pizzazz I need for a 5-star rating, it's a strong 4.5. There's intrigue, secrets, mystery, fairies, dragons, and adventure. What more could you want in a story? All of our favorite characters have returned and we've added a few new people, such as Princess Adara who's on a mission. The characters are well-developed, fun, and easy to like. The settings are magical with just enough descriptions that you can imagine them easily. The story line moves along at a decent pace and there's a twist in the end that even though I didn't necessarily like the character to begin with, I didn't see the twist coming! If you've read the series before now, this does not take place at the end of the series. This takes place earlier in the series. Emma and Eadric aren't married yet, but they've had some of their early adventures. I'd place it right around the time of book three. It's a great addition to the series and whether you're finding this series for the first time or are just excited about the new story, I highly recommend this one! So much fun! *** Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this title. I was not compensated for my review. All opinions and conclusions are my own. ***
