"There are two kinds of women: those who marry princes and those who marry frogs. The frogs never become princes, but it is an acknowledged fact that a prince may very well, in the course of an ordinary marriage, gradually, at first almost imperceptibly, turn into a frog. Happy the woman who after 25 years still wakes up beside the prince she fell in love with...I want to tell you a different kind of love story, about a frog who became a prince."
So begins Stephen Mitchell's adult fairytale...the story of a meditative frog's love for a rebellious princess, how she came to love him in spite of herself, and how her refusal to compromise helped him become what he was truly meant to be. This is a magical tale - poignant and profound, The Frog Prince will both amuse and enlighten.
