    "Excellent audio quality, subtle background music, and the use of sound effects...make this an entertaining addition to audio collections." - School Library Journal


    Review by: School Library Journal - May 15, 2004
    "We all know that fairy tales end with the words "and they lived happily ever after." But what if they don't live happily ever after? What if you're a frog prince turned into a human prince? Is life with the princess who kissed your "slimy frog lips" all that it's cracked up to be? John Scieszka pursues the answers to these questions by continuing the prince's story. As read by Patrick Girard Lawlor, the characters are easily distinguished, from the strident tones of the princess, to the longing voice of the prince when searching for someone to turn him back into a frog, to the sweet voice of the too helpful fairy godmother. Lawlor makes the three witches from famous fairy tales especially engaging. Listening to Snow White's witch while gazing at an illustration of the poison-infused apple makes it quite evident why the frog prince turned and ran! Excellent audio quality, subtle background music, and the use of sound effects such as a hairdryer, running footsteps, squelching gumdrops underfoot, and croaking frogs make this an entertaining addition to audio collections."

    "Happily ever after??? What might that mean if you're the Frog Prince and the princess just cannot abide lily pads in bed or hopping in the castle? While on a quest to find a witch to turn him back into a frog, the disconsolate prince creates his own satisfactory solution. In this extension of the familiar tale, Jon Scieszka's zany humor resonates in Patrick Lawlor's narration. Lawlor convincingly portrays a prissy princess and oozes personality as a series of witches who have agendas of their own for the prince. Music and sound effects add just the right amount of setting--clattering brick paths, chattering forest creatures, and bonging clocks."
