The Princess and the Frog by Elizabeth Thornberry
War strikes between the kingdoms of Flavus and Verde. The distant (about 2 blocks away) kingdom of Verde witnesses a tragedy when their beloved prince disappears one night after throwing himself to a swamp. “He was itching for a swim,” said his servant and bestfriend Henry, the last person who had seen the prince.

Ten years later. 18-year old Princess Aurelia always gets what she wants– dresses, jewelry, ponies and an army of men she could humiliate– so when she meets a talking toad-ish frog at her garden and teaches her a lesson on manners, she is aghast. To her more aghast, the frog introduces himself as the missing prince of Verde, Prince Cyan. Still aghast, the princess brings the frog to her home and when she finds herself accused of murder and insanity by her father’s court, she couldn’t help but suspect the frog she had thought as her mentor and friend. Has she gone mad? Is there an enemy lurking inside her own home? Could Prince Cyan be planning something far more bigger besides darting his tongue on flies? Where the hell are her ponies?
“Kept me all day and night.”
