Princess Imogene, about to turn 13, is supposed to be studying the book her mother has thrust upon her: The Art of Being A Princess. But being neither good nor beautiful, she leaves her studies and wanders down by the pond where she finds a talking frog who claims to be a bewitched prince. Of course she helps him out by kissing him, but then SHE turns into a frog. Now what to do? Get rid of the curse by turning someone else into a frog? First she must get back to the castle to talk to her parents. But, horrors, she is kidnapped by a traveling troupe of actors who decide that she is worth more performing in their shows than she is for ransom.  (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher award, 2015)
