Garth Nix is on hilarious form as he spins his very own fairy tale, featuring Princess Anya, who, with her loyal dog, must embark on a terribly important (capital Q) Quest to acquire the ingredients for a reversal lip balm, the vital item needed to change a frog back to a prince . . . oh, and save her kingdom from her villainous step(step)father.
I was interested in reading a modern fairytale based on the story of the frog prince, but for me I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I might. I just didn’t find it that funny, I mean I can see why young readers may enjoy it but it just wasn’t for me. It is a shame. I did like the cover and all the frogs inside the cover, I thought it looked enchanting.
