Ok. I have been more than a little scared to post this book series. Before I go and mess something up, I would just like to say… These books are VERY kid-friendly, but also have a LOT of magic and witches in them. Ed Baker writes very, magical books; and most of the main female characters are witches…

The book is about a princess who kisses a frog, (Pretty normal right?) and of course she turns into a frog, goes on a super cool adventure and later in the series… she becomes a witch. But she’s a GOOD witch, kind-of like the Good Witch in the Wizard of Oz. She does have magic, and she does do spells, but they aren’t like ‘voodoo’ spells. It’s more of Disney-ish magic. Like ‘Bibb-it-ty Bob-it-ty Boo!’, it’s not ‘Bad’, creepy magic. And I don’t think there’s any ‘Dark’ magic. (Though it has been awhile since I last read the books…)

Over all, I am going to suggest this book, but PLEASE ask your parents first!!! And even though there’s lots, and LOTS of magic, it’s still a really, good book. -The Young Llama Reader.


  • Very funny and kid-friendly
  • Totally awesome adventure!


  • LOTS of magic and witches

Princess Emeralda a.k.a. Emma isn’t exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh is more like a donkey’s bray than tinkling bells, she trips over her own feet and she does not like Prince Jorge, whom her mother hopes she will marry. But if Emma ever thought to escape her troubles, she never expected it to happen by turning into a frog! When convinced to kiss a frog so he might return to being a prince, somehow the spell is reversed and Emma turns into a frog herself! Thus begins their adventure-a quest to return to human form.
