    That was wonderful I so enjoyed it. I’m off to read some others.


  3. Jade says:

    Loved this story. It gave me a giggle and brightened my day. Thank you!


  4. Rabia says:

    What a fun mashup of Little Red Riding Hood, the Princess and the Frog, and other fairy tale tropes! Loved it. 🙂


  5. Very cute story, and an interesting and unique twist on the frog-becomes-prince trope. Great job!


  6. Cathie says:

    Great! I was really charmed. An endearing voice and a good twist.


  7. That was excellent. I enjoyed every thing about it.


  8. Kris Bowser says:

    Fun story. I liked the glimpses of the larger setting.


  9. P.S.: it needs to be “The effect of lupine nature in village societies.”

      D’you know, I went through the whole ‘affect’ ‘effect’ thing at least three times and it turns out I still used the wrong one! Ho hum. Better luck next time!

    Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. It’s always a worry whether something will work or not and you never find put until it’s too late to pull it back into the safety of obscurity! My objective was to have some fun and to entertain, hopefully I’ve managed that 🙂


  11. K. Lynn says:

    Not every girl winds up with the frog AND the prince. Loved it!


  12. Amy says:

    Finally catching up on these. I love the twist in this. 🙂


  13. The Princess and the Frog was my favorite tale when I was a child (I have kissed so many toads to my mother’s greatest displeasure, but none has transformed into my prince charming, unfortunately).
    I love your version of this tale, your story’s setting, and your MC’s love towards frogs 🙂
