Lift Every Voice Virtual Book Club: Veronica Bartles, The Princess and the Frogs (Ages 4-8)

Author Veronica Bartles will read The Princess and the Frogs, a delightfully funny reinvention of the classic fairy tale, The Frog Prince, that Kirkus Reviews called “a refreshing princess book that puts kissing in its place” Veronica will answer questions about the book, about the value of asking “what if?”, and more. The event will be moderated by The Ivy’s Children’s Literature Specialist, Rona London, and will take place on Zoom. The book is available to order here.

About the Book:

Princess Cassandra desperately wants a pet frog. Unfortunately, she loves them so much that she can’t help kissing them goodnight. And everyone knows what happens to a frog when a princess kisses him! Before long, poor Princess Cassandra has a castle full of princes, but princes aren’t pets!


About the Author:

She is the Assistant Regional Advisor for the MD/DE/WV region of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the Read Local Challenge Coordinator for SCBWI MD/DE/WV/VA/DC.
