To Be or Not to Be...a Frog: The Frog Prince and Shifting Paradigms.
Crane, Lisa Marie
Journal of Children's Literature, v23 n1 p42-47 Spr 1997
Discusses three modern variations of the classic "Frog Prince" folk tale: "Pondlarker" (Fred Gwynne); "The Frog Prince Continued" (Jon Scieszka); and "The Prince of the Pond" (Donna Jo Napoli). Notes that these variants create a world in which frogs can have values, wisdom, and emotion, and in which frogs can influence the ways of humanity. (RS)
