Whatever After: Once Upon a Frog
My brother Jonah and I just want to TALK to the magic mirror — we’re not planning on traveling into any fairy tales today. Promise. Except we do wind up going through the mirror, this time into the story of The Frog Prince. The princess, who’s supposed to transform the cute little frog back into a handsome prince, turns out to be super rude. Jonah and I decide we don’t want — or need — her help. We can take matters into our own hands and turn the frog into a prince ourselves! Can’t we?
Now we just have to:
- Climb out of a smelly well
- Canoe over a waterfall
- Sneak into a palace
- Kiss a frog (ack!)
There’s no time to waste — let’s hop to it!
Praise for Whatever After
"Hilarious...with unexpected plot twists and plenty of girl power." —Booklist
"My daughter loved the young, sassy girl on the cover and I loved the premise of the book...The best part is that they mess up the story and the lead female character has to learn how to stand on her own. The feminist in me adored it, and the mother in me loved how my daughter would long to cuddle in close as we read together." –Danielle Herzog, blogging for the Washington Post
"Tons of fractured fairy tale fun." –New York Times bestselling author Lauren Myracle
"An uproariously funny read." –Kirkus Reviews
