9780140371512: The Prince of the Pond: Otherwise Known as De Fawg Pin

From the author of The Magic Circle, Zel, and Stones in Water.

Who is that handsome green stranger? None of the pond dwellers has ever seen the peculiar new frog before. They found him sitting in a pile of human clothes outside the hag’s house. What a strange frog he is! He gets his feet tangled when he tries to jump, he refuses to eat bugs, and he can’t tell a toad from a frog. He calls himself “De Fawg Pin,” and he’s about to turn pond life topsy-turvy!
 
“The frog prince motif has inspired many books, but few as original as this novel.”—Booklist
 
“An animal fantasy that fairy tale readers will relish.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

About the Author:

Donna Jo Napoli is the author of many books for children and young adults including, The Magic CircleZel, and Stones in Water. She has won numerous awards, including the Golden Kite Award and the Sydney Taylor Award for Stones in Water.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-This retold fairy tale has its poignant moments, but it's also hilarious at times. Most of the funny bits come when the prince who's been turned into a frog tries to communicate. He can't pronounce words so well because he doesn't know how to roll up his tongue (hence the subtitle), so it makes a great read-aloud. Pin bravely taunts a dangerous spiked turtle with mangled insults like "you one dumb tuh-tuh," hops to safety, then spits a rock at him. A female frog makes earnest attempts to understand the extraordinary title character. She's a smart little amphibian, but readers know exactly why Pin is such a puzzle to her, which makes her efforts to figure him out all the more humorous. Science Is Fun Award: Readers will enjoy this funny fairy tale, but they will also learn about what makes frogs different from toads, why they have two vocal sacs, and how the whole mating thing works.
