"Imogene may not have liked being a princess, but she definitely doesn't want to be a frog. Transformed after kissing a talking frog to break his curse, and held captive by a troupe of actors who force her to perform in their terrible plays, Princess Imogene must find a way to un-frog herself without passing the curse to another victim. Sassy humour combined with likeable, well-developed characters makes this fractured fairy tale a fun, frothy, and satisfying read. For another spirited heroine trying to break a spell, check out Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine."

Not great. I hated that none of the villains were punished. In fairy tales, the villains have to be punished, or at least redeemed. This had neither and I find that really annoying! This does not at all resemble the original fairy tale, except in the barest of premises (royalty getting turned into amphibians). All the commoners were portrayed as either stupid or greedy, which was not flattering. Altogether, I was not very impressed. I usually adore fairy tales and fairy tale rewrites, but I found this one boring and frustrating.
