I know there must be picture books where a princess kisses a frog and turns into a frog . . . can anybody think of one?

Thanks!

Ooooooh my favourite picture book of all time... BEWARE OF THE FROG by William Bee has a little old lady turn into a frog.

But that's not what you're after. Then there's THE FROG PRINCESS by E D Baker. She turns into a frog. It's very funny. But that's not a picture book.

Then there's the Frog Princess by Jan Ormerod. And another by Laura Cecil (who's also an agent?). I'm not sure if they're exactly what you're after.

And then I've written a version of the story on Utales.com where the roles are reversed (princess is a frog, prince is human). And because the prince is a right little stinker (not letting her sit at the table etc), she tells him to bog-off when he discovers she's a beautiful princess and asks her to marry him. I had fun with that story!

This probably isn't what you're after, but there are the picture book adaptations of Disney's The Princess and the Frog.

In The Frog Prince, Continued by Jon Scieszka, both the prince and princess turn into frogs at the end (though they're both human when they kiss).

I'll come back if I think of any others!
