Once upon a time, a princess named Cassandra wished for a pet frog to call her own. But each time she kissed a frog goodnight -- WHOOSH! -- he turned into a prince.

But princes aren't pets! Will Cassandra ever find her perfect pet frog?

THE PRINCESS AND THE FROGS is a fractured fairy tale retelling of "The Frog Prince" from Balzer & Bray (Harper Collins)

I loved working with the talented Kristin Rens (Balzer & Bray) on my debut picture book, THE PRINCESS AND THE FROGS! (If you missed the blog post announcing this book, you can read it here.)

Princess Cassandra loves frogs! She would love to learn everything there is to know, but with 5,000 different frog species on the earth, there is a lot to learn! Click here for some

June 2015: When I saw that Bookworks in Albuquerque, NM was hosting a Big on Animals! event featuring frogs, of course I had to attend. The lovely ladies from the NM Natural History Museum were great ... and I got to hold a frog!

I also got to meet the adorable Catherine, who had so much fun playing with the frogs. Reminds me of a certain Princess. ;)

May 2015: In the NDI New Mexico show, "Rollin' on the Rio," the dance performed by children from Adobe Acres Elementary School included many, many adorable tree frogs. Princess Cassandra would have loved to meet so many talented frogs! Thank you, Adobe Acres and NDI New Mexico for taking time backstage to help me celebrate my upcoming picture book!
