This may not exactly be a traditional fairy tale, but it certainly references a lot of them. This is the story of the Frog Prince. He kept reading his story over and over again, where it said he was supposed to live happily ever after. But he wasn't very happy. So he went to find a witch who would change him back, and encountered a lot of witches from a lot of other fairy tales. ( )

Great lesson in "the grass isn't greener on the other side" and remembering to appreciate what you have in the people and places around you. ( )

Summary: This is a story about what happens after the "happily ever after" in The Frog Prince story. The Princess and The Frog Prince were very unhappy and they were always getting on each others nerves. The Frog Prince decided that he would he better off if he turned back into a frog, so he set off into the woods to find a witch to turn him back. Along the way he finds several witches and a fairy godmother, but he realizes that he will only be truly happy when he is with his princess. He returns home to a worried princess, they kiss, then they both turn into frogs, and they lived happily ever after.

Personal reaction: I thought that this was a good story that showed that sometimes things are not always perfect. Sometimes you have to fight for your happiness. I liked that he set out to find happiness because he thought he would find it elsewhere, but it turned out he found happiness at home with his princess.

Extension idead:
1. In the classroom, the teacher could have a lesson about how you can only find happiness within yourself and not in other people or things.
2. For an activity, the teacher could have the children come up with their own version of what happened to The Frog Prince and his princess after they turned into frogs.
3. The students could paint pictures of a frog prince and princess.

This book is the story of what happens to the princess and the frog after happily ever after. They are not happy, in fact, they are miserable. The prince goes on a mission to find a witch that can turn him back into a frog. While he is gone, the prince and princess learn to appreciate each other. I would use this in a classroom to continue work on fairytales. It explores many fairy tales in new ways, and would be a great start to analyzing different works. I really like the illustrations within this book, they use dark colors and are the opposite of typically fairytale images. They involve great detail, and would also be a good place to start analyzing visual information. ( )
