ARC Review: The Frog Princess Returns by E. D. Baker

The Frog Princess Returns
Author: E. D. Baker
Series: Tales of the Frog Princess
Publication: Bloomsbury USA Childrens (June 6, 2017)

Description: Fans of E. D. Baker's The Frog Princess, rejoice! Fifteen years after the original, Princess Emma, Prince Eadric, and all the beloved characters are back for another magical adventure from popular author E. D. Baker.

Two weeks after Emma's birthday, Prince Eadric -- having been turned from a frog into a human again -- is still in Greater Greensward. One day, a beautiful princess named Adara arrives at the castle in Greater Greensward for a visit, claiming to be Emma's distant cousin. But Adara has other motives that threaten Emma and Eadric's blossoming romance.

Meanwhile, something is very wrong in Greater Greensward. Crops are dying, streams are drying up, and large sections of trees in the enchanted forest are withering -- all because the Fairy Queen has disappeared. Without her, there is no peace in the magical kingdom, and dangerous foes threaten to take advantage of her absence. Only brave, tenacious Emma with her knowledge of the land can restore order . . . but first she must set out on a journey unlike any before.

Brimming with lovable characters and page-turning magic, The Frog Princess Returns will bring a whole new batch of readers to E. D. Baker's highly acclaimed, wonderfully popular world of Frog Princess series.

My Thoughts: Emma and Eadric are adjusting to being true loves and planning their wedding when a couple of things get in their way.

First, lovely Princess Adara arrives from Lower Muckworthy and tries to steal Eadric away from Emma.

Second, the fairy queen has disappeared and those campaigning to be the new fairy queen are causing dissension among the fairies. Emma, Eadric, with tagalong Adara set off on an adventure to find the fairy queen and restore order to the fairies. They are also trying very hard to discourage Adara in her plans to steal Eadric away.

This was a fun story filled with entertaining characters and situations. Fans of earlier books in the series will certainly enjoy this one too.

Favorite Quote:
"Eadric, you are so brave! Adara cried. "I would have gladly watched you slay each and every spider, if Emma wasn't afraid of them."

"Oh, please!" I said as I turned the carpet around.
