I'm conflicted. On the one hand, I thought this was a fun and charming read. On the other hand... I feel this series has dragged on WAY too long.

The series began 7 books ago with The Frog Princess, which I loved. Books 1-4 chronicled the adventures of Princess Emma, her Prince Eadric, and other creature she met on the way as they overcome magical problems in the kingdom of Greater Greensward. The author then released what I will refer to as book 5, although chronically it comes before the first

Princess Millie and her soon-to-be husband, Audun, are buried up to their necks in wedding day preparations. Trying to make everything perfect for their (hopefully) perfect day. Unfortunately for them, life has a way of interfering. And it seems that their only hope of living happily ever after depends on them.

A Prince Among Frogs is a delightful novel filled with magic and wonder. Prior to reading this novel, I was unaware that this is a series of novels all centered around the Frog Princess, w

A Prince Among Frogs was a fitting and enjoyable end to the Princess and the Frog series. I liked that this book brought the series full circle with another prince turned frog. It was a nice way to tie the whole story back to the beginning. I enjoyed seeing the full cast of characters from the previous books return, too, although many of them were sadly flat and one-dimensional in this book (I'm looking at you, Emma, Eadric, Grassina, and Haywood). I also would have appreciated a some fresh new ...more

If this one had not been the last in the series I would not have continued with it. The set-up was bad, the characters acted like total morons through the whole book. The baby prince is kidnapped. Through the entire series it has been pointed out that dragons are able to find things with magic, and Millie has done so on more than one occasion, but when it comes to finding her own flesh-and-blood-baby-brother the thought does not even cross anyone's mind? Or her parents? She keeps having to go th ...more

This book was so good! I can't believe this is the last book in my favorite series. I've been reading this series since middle school and I'm so sad that this series is over. This was an amazing end to the series. Can she please write another spin-off series based on Millie's kids. I'm gonna cry, at least I can always reread the books. This is one of my fav series of all time :)

The Prince among frogs

This book has great cultural information in the story. It is based off wizards, dragons, trolls and other mythical creatures. This shows how some cultures tell stories and some background information of what they believed. The adventures and troubles the characters go through to get to their destination shows great motivation and could help people believe in themselves. This book would be great to put on a computer because it will help the humans have a great l

A weak and rather pathetic concluding book in The Tales of the Frog Princess book series. In this story, Emma has given birth to an infant son, Felix, despite the fact her only other child (Millie) is in her mid-teens and preparing to get married to her boyfriend of brief acquaintance, Audun (a major issue I have with this entire book series is that it focuses on brief courtships and very young [early to mid-teen] marriages - a forced reality of life during the middle ages but the worst possible ...more

Can I just say that this book really ticked me off and Milly is an annoying brat and everyone else is kind of idiotic? I really enjoyed the rest of this series but this book just got under my skin.

I read this after having had a huge gap in between reading the book before this one, so I enjoyed going back to the world of the Frog Princess. On the other hand, this book was not as enjoyable as the previous ones. I think it just went on a little too long. Personally my favorites were when Eadric and Emma were the ones having the adventures, but I did enjoy the other books.

I am glad I finally finished the series though! This series will always have a special place in my heart. I think I starte

Perhaps unfortunately for me, I picked up this book without realizing it was book 7 in a series. I may have enjoyed it more if I'd read the first six as intended, but I'll never know that now. A Prince Among Frogs is a fun little story with decent action and an interesting set of characters in situations appropriate for it's audience, but it was still lacking something I couldn't quite put my finger on. Maybe it wasn't tightly written enough, or possibly I was just lacking the background connect ...more

They do all live happily ever after after many wild and wonderful adventures. I just wish there were more books in the series!!

All the E.D. Baker ones are fun--perfect for 7-12-year-olds (and the occasional 33-year-old:) and well-written, to boot.

REALLY GOOD but (theres always a but!) a little too young for me:P i started this series back in the 5th grade (actually the summer before) and fell in love with it! then when i got the Dragon Princess book, i liked it but i enjoyed Emma + Eadric more. This one was great but like i said, too young cuz its likie, a 5th grade book! younger actually i think cuz Emma+Eadric even seemed like a older-type book....ANYWAYS im glad the whole frog thing was incorporated cuz i liked Emma as a frog (and dra ...more

It's been a year since I last worked on this series and I kept wondering why I didn't remember how the current relations had come to be... Then I realized I missed a book. The numbering of the series has changed on Goodreads since last year (the now listed #5 book used to be listed as 0.5 as it is a prequel). So I thought I was on book 7 and that's exactly what this used to be listed as. Oops. So this suffered a little for me but even now that I've read the previous book it's still just ok cute. ...more

Oh, okay. So this is book 7 and I got it thinking it was book 8. kfadljf;klsajskl;aj Well, this is a fun conclusion to the Tales of the Frog Princess. Kind of reminds me of Kristin Cashore's BITTERBLUE, where Princess Bitterblue is the main character, where Katsa, main character in GRACELING, the first book in the series, is a side character. It's mainly about someone's little brother getting kidnapped and turned into a frog. Eh. Everyone should read this series. (:

This book felt like there wasn't much to wrap up, but the author really wanted to write another book. I like the characters from this generation better than the original, and it was fun how they referenced things that happened in all of the previous books and unseen consequences, but it started to feel choppy. It also felt like she forced some conflict between the characters. Less impressed, but definitely glad the series is wrapped up.

The price is taken by the trolls and the frog princess's daughter and boyfriend must go look for him.

This was a ok book but not as thrilling as I had hoped just from reading all the other books I exspected more. I recommend the whole series but read them in order or it gets way to confusing. This is more for middle school teens but If you like fantasy as much as I do read it!
Elevetha
Millie and her fiancé, Audun, are on two missions. One: to plan their wedding. Two: to rescue Millie's younger brother. Not necessarily in that order. Felix is now a frog. In a swamp. Where there are hundreds of other frogs. Talk about a specific needle in a haystack of look alike needles. The final book in the Tales of the Frog Princess series. Cute but not my favorite in the series.
Jessie
Last book in the Frog Princess series. It was good, but not a stand-out in the series. It was nice to see the series wrapped up though. My favorite books in the series were Once Upon a Curse (#3), Dragon Princess (#5) and Dragon Kiss (#6). Independent from this series, I found The Wide Awake Princess to be absolutely delightful, and very clever.

Though not as funny as her first books starring Emma, Baker does a wonderful job continuing her tale and increasing the enjoyment. I am by no means tired of her story and have loved all the adventures; especially the return of Emma as a frog and a dragon. I was also delighted to see much more of Eadric then previously, my all-time favorite character!

This series has been so cute! Although I do think that the series has dragged in a little too much, I like this book as the finale because it follows along the lines of the first books. Princess millies younger brother has been kidnapped and turned into a frog, and Millie, her fiancé audun, and her parents have to go and find him.
Sarah
This is, I believe, the final tale of the Frog Princess and while I enjoyed them, I'd be glad to see them end. I don't love Millie and Audun as much as I loved Emma and Eadric so the last few books have been only okay for me. That being said, they're quite nice to listen to because they are pleasant and generally cheerful.
