The Princess and the Frogs
by Veronica Bartles | illustrated by Sara Palacios
I loved working with the talented Kristin Rens (Balzer + Bray) on my debut picture book, THE PRINCESS AND THE FROGS! (Book announcement blog post here.)
“A refreshing princess book that puts kissing in its place and rejoices in childhood idylls.”
— Kirkus Reviews
Once upon a time, a princess named Cassandra wishes for a pet frog to call her own. But each time she kisses a frog goodnight-- WHOOSH! -- He turns into a prince.
Princes aren't pets! Will Cassandra ever find her perfect frog?

The lovely ladies from the NM Natural History Museum taught me a lot about frogs. And I got to hold one! (26 June 2015)
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 always something new to learn! Click here for some
NDI New Mexico friends
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 THE PRINCESS AND THE FROGS!
