Fairy Tale Collection: The Frog Prince

An age-old prophecy foresees disaster if the young Princess does not marry within the next year. But she shuns her duties and prefers playing sports and pranks. When she meets a young Prince both fall in love and he vows to be faithful to her. But when he breaks his promise, the Princess’ good fairy turns him into a frog. Though heartbroken at his disappearance, the Princess is convinced he will return and rejects all her suitors. One day, the Princess drops her golden ball into a pond and a frog offers to fetch it for her, if she promises to let him play, eat and sleep with her. Once the ball is retrieved, she also breaks her promise and flees. But the frog is persistent and the Princess’ kiss releases the Prince from his curse. The couple has learned that the key to happiness lies in faith, trust and promises kept.
