Garth Nix is on hilarious form as he spins his very own fairy tale, featuring Princess Anya, who, with her loyal dog, must embark on a terribly important (capital Q) Quest to acquire the ingredients for a reversal lip balm, the vital item needed to change a frog back to a prince . . . oh, and save her kingdom from her villainous step(step)father.
Winner of the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Children’s Literature, 2018.
“Frogkisser is a delight because Garth Nix transmogrifies the conventional fairytale into something contemporary and thought-provoking without losing any of its excitement and reassuring structure”.
