"Ribbit . . . Ribbit . . . er . . . good afternoon!" Is that a frog speaking? Yes, but clearly it's no ordinary pond frog. This frog is the substitute principal of P.S. 88. He showed up shortly after the real principal, Mr. Bundy, was called away indefinitely. Now the school has to learn to get along with a slimy, green-skinned amphibian for their principal. It's not always easy. He plays leapfrog with kids in the gym, swims in the kindergarten sink, and eats a student's science homework when it happens to be a collection of flies. Even with this odd set of habits, though, the kids have to admit he tries hard to be a good principal. But he's not their beloved Mr. Bundy. Or is he?

Inspired by "The Frog Prince", as told by the Brothers Grimm, this riotously funny spoof will surprise and delight readers of all ages.
