    1. Pondlarker is a frog who wishes to be a prince. He sets off to be kissed by a princess, but has a change of heart at the end. After all, frogs "do many things much better than kings." I don't know which are funnier, the words or the illustrations. Note: Yes, THAT Fred Gwynne wrote it Herman Munster.


    2. I liked this book. I used to love frogs and toads when I was in elementary school so I was able to enjoy it. It takes me back to those good old days. I recommend it for all the frog lovers in the world and those who appreciate a good fairytale retelling that teaches the lesson that princes are overrated.


    3. I like the ending of this book but getting there the story felt a little dry. It was honestly hard for me to pay attention because of how many words were on the pages. I'm not sure if this was meant to be a picture book because there are quite a few pictures. If it is, it's a lengthy picture book.


    4. What a cute story's all about a kiss. The kingdom is overwhelmed with princes roaming the countryside. In the pond however is Pondlarker and his family. Pondlarker is a frog whose mother has told the story about the princess who kisses the frog and turns him into a prince to her family every night. While Pondlarker's brothers and sisters knew this was just a story, Pondlarker held onto this story and was always looking for his princess. When his parents told him that being a frog was okay, Pondl [...]


    5. I shared this book with my fifth grade students and they really enjoyed it. The illustrations are humorous and do an awesome job of helping to tell the story of a frog who spends his life wishing that some princess would kiss him, so he could become a prince. The book led to a nice discussion about why it's important to be yourself.


    6. A spin-off of the original Frog Prince, with an excellent reason for listening to what mom and dad tell you. The illustrations make you feel as though you are low to the ground watching the story take place. A very unique look at the frog prince.


    7. This book takes a spin on the traditional Princess and the Frog. I liked how the frog tries to find the princess to become human. I think children would enjoy comparing and contrasting the traditional Princess and the Frog to Pondlarker.
