Jon Scieszka does it again, taking a familiar story and twirling it on its axis. The endings of fairy tales never take into account what happens after the prince wins some winsome damsel or the princess is handed some handsome prince. In this one, the bloom is definitely off the rose as the princess and her pond-loving husband argue and bicker. Having enough, he decides he was better off as an amphibian and sets off to find a witch to help him.
The story takes us from one well-known fairy tale magic wielder to another as the prince vainly pursues his desire. The text is matched with angular drawings of the peregrinating pop-eyed prince (suggesting his former froggy appendages). Humor abounds as he evades the dangerous enchantresses along the way (hey, this guy knows his fairy tales as well as anyone!) and finally remembers what was important to him.
With a cover that mimics a thicker, leather-bound tome, this is a funny little story about what happens after happily ever after.
