Grimm, J. (1989). The Frog Prince or Iron Henry (Schroeder, B. Illus.). New York: North-South Books.This version of The Frog Prince is retold by Naomi Lewis and illustrated by Binette Schroeder. The story seems to be fairly similar to the original. The princess loses her golden ball down the well and the frog retrieves it after she promises him anything he wants. She does not follow through with her promise until the frog shows up at the castle and her father orders her to fulfill the promise. The illustrations are very whimsical and fit the fantasy story well. A cute tale that teaches readers to have integrity and to always fulfill your promises.

This is a traditional telling of the classic Frog Prince story and it sparks a number of good conversations regarding what is right and wrong. However, I was dismayed at the end to learn that the spoiled princess, who actually throws the frog at a wall, gets to marry the prince. Reward for a sullen, and ultimately mean, keeping of a promise should not be rewarded. I had never read the traditional story before, so it was a surprise when I learned that this book followed the original tale so closely.Read A Frog Prince by Alix Berenzy instead. Good behavior is rewarded and the prince and the princess are perfectly matched.
