The Frog Prince

3.07  ·  Rating Details ·  15 Ratings  ·  4 Reviews
At first, it was great. Sure. It always is. She cuddled a frog, wishing for more, and—presto! A handsome prince who doted on her. It meant the end of her marriage, of course, but her ex was something of a toad himself, who had a nasty habit of talking with his mouth full and a tongue good for nothing but licking stamps.

Ah, The Frog Prince, a traditional tale retold by the Brothers Grim of how a princess drops her golden ball into a pond which is retrieved by a frog after she agrees to bring the frog back to her palace and let him join her at meals and in her bedroom at night. However, once she actually has her golden ball in hand, the princess forgets all about the little green talking critter and gleefully skips back to her palace. And when the frog shows up at the royal premises to remind the princess of her

After reading this, no girl would ever want to kiss a frog... >_>

Apparently my print=out is lacking a line ; my printer needs a copy=editor? At any rate, I can't wait for an eventual Collected Coover Shorts volume. Meanwhile, very nice that most of these are FREE on the internetz (check regular for those rotating PayWalls).
