The Princess Imogene is trying to prepare for her 13th birthday by reading The Art of Being a Princess but is finding it a struggle She's not particularly beautiful or kind or any of the things that princesses are supposed to be This might be why when she is approached by a frog she agrees to kiss him to break the spell The only problem She has kissed Harry a local boy who has irritated a witch and now SHE will be a frog unless she can convince someone else to kiss her and then be turned into a frog She asks the witch to break the spell but she refuses Next she ends up in the clutches of the well meaning but dense Luella and her beau Bertie who convinces Louella to run away with his troupe of actors where they can find fame and fortune by showcasing the talking Chinese frog This plan doesn't go the way either Imogene or Luella would like Imogene just wants to get home to her parents and Luella is not allowed to act Eventually the two make it back to the castle where a family friend of Imogene helps her figure out a way to break the curseStrengths Having just done a unit on myths folk tales and fairy tales with a seventh grade language arts class this would be a fun book for students to read Imogene's plight as a frog is amusing and makes for a light read and the cover is fresh and appealingWeaknesses Something seemed to be missing Imogene had to linger far too long with the actors and I kept waiting for something bigger to happen The ending was similarly dissatisfying Vande Velde usually has such clever fairy tale turns that I was just expecting something
