Poor Princess Anya. Forced to live with her evil stepmother's new husband, her evil stepstepfather. Plagued with an unfortunate ability to break curses with a magic-assisted kiss. And forced to go on the run when her stepstepfather decides to make the kingdom entirely his own. Aided by a loyal talking dog, a boy thief trapped in the body of a newt, and some extraordinarily mischievous wizards, Anya sets off on a Quest that, if she plays it right, will ultimately free her land-and teach her a thing or two about the use of power, the effectiveness of a well-placed pucker, and the finding of friends in places both high and low. With Frogkisser!, acclaimed bestselling author Garth Nix has conjured a fantastical tale for all ages, full of laughs and danger, surprises and delights, and an immense population of frogs. It's 50% fairy tale, 50% fantasy, and 100% pure enjoyment from start to finish.

I thought this book had a lot of potential, however I couldn't get into it at all. I actually found it boring. I don't think this should have been in the teen section, I think a younger audience would be a better fit.

Humorous fantasy, a teen version of Piers Anthony, perhaps. Definitely a light read, amusing, and fun.

Hmm. I didn't feel very involved in the story for some reason. Also, not really the kind of fairy tale I prefer. The characters were not very well-developed, and their predicaments weren't especially sympathy inducing. In addition, why in the world was this listed as Teen? Overall, not something I'd recommend.

If you like your teen fantasy with a hefty dash of humor, and a fair bit of poking fun at traditional fairy tales, then Frogkisser is the book for you. It has a super appealing main character, dogs play a major role (!!), and I laughed out loud more than once while reading this. I can't think of a word to describe it other than charming.
