Read full description of the books Pondlarker:What a cute story....it'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, Pondlarker still wants his princess. One day he spotted a sign directing him to a princess. He knows the dangers of leaving the pond but this was his dream. It is quite an adventure for Pondlarker to get to the castle and when he gets there and sees his princess, he learns that his dream was not as wonderful as he thought. Pondlarker has to make some choices, tough choices, before he leaves the castle.
I loved the title of this book, so unique and different. A nice twist to a classic tale. Pondlarker had a dream and he was not afraid of going after it. Once he really saw his dream in reality, he was able to put all the pieces together and come up with his own decision and I like that. The pictures are not overly dramatic but cute and fun.
