    " it was slow going at 1st but picked up. "

    " This book had me very excited and entertained with every page!! "

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taunya | 2/2/2014

    " I love this series! This is the best one yet. It goes back in time to when Grassina was a girl, and is about how she gets her magic and meets Hayward, her one true love. I read it in a day... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 malysa | 1/21/2014

    " fantastic story of how grassina became the green witch "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miranda | 1/19/2014

    " Is it good anyone??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/17/2014

    " It was nice to learn the background of Emma's Aunt Grassina and how she met Haywood but for me it left out one important story-How Haywood became an otter! I expected it and didn't get it, I was disappointed. It was good, just not great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 1/17/2014

    " This is a Prequel to the Frog Princess. It's kinda fun to see how some of the mayhem started. Overall story not quite as charming as the rest...and I don't get why they named it what they did? The Salamander is hardly in the book. I think something like the Green Witch would have been better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 1/15/2014

    " Not my favorite in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/1/2014

    " The only problem with this book is that it doesn't quite fit with the other books. I am now reading Dragon's Breath, and there are several instances where the facts don't match up. Otherwise I really enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 12/23/2013

    " This is the prequel to the Frog Princess. It was good though not as good as the Frog Princess. Still a pretty entertaining story with lots of magic, magical creatures, and romance. "

    " great book I loved the fighting between the two sisters but I was a little sad because I knew it was going to end badly.I still loved getting to hear the aunt part of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Britt, Book Habitue | 11/27/2013

    " Enjoyed this a bit more than I expected to. Interesting prequel to the Frog Princess books, but you don't really want to read it first-- read it 5th. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 8/23/2013

    " Good book. It really gives you some nice background info for the tales of a frog princess series. I would read the series first though... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marina | 8/7/2013

    " It was quite a darling story, didn't quite attract me as much as the others did. It was very interesting to hear the story from Grassina's point of view. It had it's pluses and minuses. Overall just a fun book to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 5/27/2013

    " An amusing, cute, and lighthearted read for someone who doesn't want to trudge through a thick book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cara | 5/16/2013

    " This book tells the story of how Grassina became the Green Witch, and all the background of that generation. It was pretty interesting although I like the story line with Emma and Eadric a little better. Still a good book though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawna | 3/26/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 6/27/2011

    " My pre-teen read this series and *begged* me to read this b/c she loved it. In the interest of good parenting, not turning down an invitation into my daughter's world, etc., I read it. :-) I can see why a nearly 12 yo girl would love it. I would have been all over this series at her age, too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skedatt | 4/17/2011

    " Not nearly as cohesive as the first book. Should have been edited a few more times to clean up continuity. "

    " Loved every minute of it. Now I'm hunting down all her other books... This could get expensive since she seems to have quite a few ... "
