Dragon's Breath by E.D. Baker is the second of the Frog Princess books. Emma and Eadric are back to human form, and having a celebratory breakfast with Aunt Grassina, the Green Witch. But she is too distracted by the return of her long lost love who is now a talking otter.

To get Grassina's mind back in the game, Emma and Eadric decide to find the cure to Haywood's curse. Why not? they figure. They've already solved their own curse! More or less. Turns out that if Emma sneezes, she and Eadric become frogs again temporarily.

Curses are a fairly common thing in Emma's world, especially since she's royalty and destined to be the next Green Witch. Curses come in different degrees depending on how annoyed the person who made the curse was when making it. The worst of the curses involve either a nearly impossible task or a nearly impossible to find ingredient. In the case of Haywood's curse, it's a rare ingredient Ñ the breath of a green dragon.

Dragon's Breath is a chance to explore beyond the bounds of the swamp and to learn more about the role of the Green Witch and the burden of her curse. ( )

Dragon's Breath was not quite as good as the first book, but it was still very funny and I did enjoy myself reading it. Again, there was nothing inappropriate in this book and it would make a great family read aloud! ( )

I finally figured out how to get mp3 audiobooks from NetLibrary onto my Zune, so I listened to this book. TOTALLY cute!

This was a great little sequel to [b:The Frog Princess|65091|The Frog Princess (Tales of the Frog Princess, #1)|E.D. Baker|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1170626809s/65091.jpg|1953064], with more adventures of Emma and Eadric.... This time they're on a quest to turn Emma's aunt Grassina's fiancé from an otter back into a human. So they have to figure out how to break the spell, then have to go around collecting bizarre and difficult-to-find objects needed in said breaking. And wow, is it interesting! Plus there's the added difficulty that a neighboring kingdom is about to attack Greater Greensward, and Grassina, the Green Witch (title of the witch charged with protecting the land) is WAAAAAY too caught up with the whole Haywood situation and is really quite shirking her protector duties...

Can Emma and Eadric find everything they need to turn Haywood back into a human? Can they do it in time to stop the spell from becoming permanent, and before Greater Greensward is invaded? Well, I suppose you'll have to read and find out, now won't you? ;) ( )

This book is about a girl who finds a dragon egg and hatches a real dragon. She naames the dragon squirt. Squirt has to risk his life to save the owner of him because she was kidnapped.

I like this book because It is dangerous and sweet that the dragon is risking his life for the little girl. At the end of the story it is sad because the dragon dies.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439679524, Paperback)

Emma and Eadric have no sooner turned back into humans (from being frogs) than Emma's mother is in a panic, Aunt Grassina is distracted because she's found her true love turned into an otter, and Emma's magic is so out of control she sends herself to the dungeon by mistake. The neighboring kingdom has chosen this moment to attack, and if Emma can't get Grassina's mind back on on protecting the kingdom, life as they know it in Greater Greensward will be in peril. From underwater sea monsters to fire-breathing dragons, this witty pair of young friends manages to sweet-talk, cajole, and race their way to victory. But when it looks as if everything will finally work out, disaster strikes, and Emma finds that magic is not enough - it takes real bravery and a strong, new friendship to succeed.
