This fairy tale story I’d read in my childhood and had always recalled as much more entertaining and lovely than it turned out here. It's rather too similar to the Maria Morevna tale, with another Prince Ivan losing his bewitched wife out of disobedience/impatience over a very simple task, and who has help against the evil wizard Koschei the Deathless by animals indebted to him. As for the artwork, it's serviceable, but unimaginative.

Very long and wordy picture book, but a wonderful retelling of a Russian tale, with lovely illustrations by Michael Hague.
Muted illustrations add to the text in this retelling of the Russian fairy tale of a young prince who marries a frog. This a great book to read aloud and discuss. Strong female character
