The Frog Prince

If I could choose one classic fairytale to illustrate as a picture book, it would be The Frog Prince. I love the humor of the story. The lesson, to always be kind and keep your word, is one that has stood the test of time and the poor frog is so endearing.

The princess threw her golden ball up so high that she missed catching it as it fell. The ball bounded away and fell into a spring. The princess looked into the spring after her ball, but it was very deep, so deep that she could not see the bottom of it.

As the princess was on her way to dinner, she heard a gentle knock at the door, and a little voice sang out: 'Open the door, my princess dear, open the door to thy true love here! And mind the words that thou and I said, by the fountain cool, in the greenwood shade.'
