The toad king and the toad queen of the lake know that their daughter, the little princess, wants a motorbike. But, how can a princess ride a motorbike? Her parents wouldn’t allow it. Thus, they decide it’s time for her to get married. How should the chosen boyfriend be? Can a toad princess marry a human prince? And what happens if the toad princess kisses the prince? What would he become?

Comment:

A fun twist on the traditional tale of the frog who turned into a prince. A tale that breaks princess and gender stereotypes as the toad princess needs a human prince to kiss. The main character is independent and brave. Children learn about gender equality in a very funny and attractive way. The pleasant and colourful illustrations help readers identify with the story.
