New York Times bestseller Jackie Urbanovic brings us a cute and clever twist on the classic fairy tale The Frog Prince.

Hopper is a frog . . . a wild frog . . . a hopelessly hoppy, rambunctious frog that doesn't fit in at the pond. But he can't figure out why.

Until one day when a wise turtle suggests that maybe he's not really a frog at all. Maybe he's a prince.

So starts Hopper's adventure to find his princess and unlock his true royal self. Will our hero find a princess? And if he does, will his transformation be everything he had hoped for?

A hilarious story about finding your true friends and your true self, Prince of a Frog is a triumphant and special read-aloud that brings a new meaning to the term: Happy (Hoppy) Endings!

" The book's true richness, though, lies in its illustrations - watercolors given texture by fine pen-and-ink hatching - which are almost as lush as the Indonesian landscape itself. They contain an abundance of detail and even sly jokes . . . [and] moments of deliberate visual ambiguity add to the fun." -Publishers Weekly (Komodo!)
