Read in July, 2012

In a deliciously sly take-off on the much-told story of the frog prince, this picture book describes how a frog happens upon a book of spells while wishing for a title containing stories about boats or castles. He decides to cast a spell, but he doesn't read the fine print. Young and old readers will enjoy this title and appreciate the author's cleverness in the text an the illustrations that were created using pencil, watercolor paints, shredded paper and glitter. Be sure to note the endpapers and title page with the author's name spelled out "Emily Gribbitt" as well as several pages that have been cut in half.
