    " A prequel to Tales of the Frog Princess. Grassina, as the second oldest princess, is told she must content herself to her life as it is, while her older sister Chartreuse is trained to rule the kingdom. But when a curse turns their mother, The Green Witch, into a disagreeable hag, Grassina finds unexpected means and powers to help defend the kingdom from lurking threats. A charming book, and one I had no trouble following despite never had read any of the other books in the series. It's for preteens, but it isn't "dumbed down" like some other books I have read in this genre. I only had two small nits: one, is that the lovey-dovey talk between Grassina and her true love area a bit much. Yes, I know they are under a spell -- it was still overboard. Also, connected with that, it would have been more believable if Grassina were 15 or 16, not 13. At 13, boys and girls are just getting over the notion that the opposite sex has cooties. Otherwise, it was very sweet. "

    " The book was okay. It was rather unnecessary, but I suppose it was fun seeing where the characters came from, and how they got to be what they were.The plot itself was sort of bland. Mostly it was just Grassina finding out something we already knew and its sort of frustrating that way. I just sort of wanted to shout "Your the Green Witch! Let's move on now." If there's anything I really liked about the book, it was the ending. The irony of their optimism and certainty was pretty great. So I think it's worth the familiar characters, but don't expect any intense plot, or real resolution to said plot. "
