This book introduces young readers to a
misunderstood princess and a prince in an
adventure they share in a threatening world.


Princess Gracie's idyllic life comes to a
sudden end when she is captured by pirates
and removed from her secluded kingdom
island. Desolate, she forgets her regal status.
She is dirty, her hair is matted, and she loses
the will to take care of herself. The pirates
sell her to a circus where she is known as the
Monkee Girl. Taunted and abused, she
escapes. On the road she is befriended by a
toad who insists he is a prince and asks her to
kiss him so that he can revert to his human
status. While they are arguing, they are
recaptured by the circus owners. After much
arguing they kiss at last; the toad becomes
a handsome prince and Monkee Girl cuts her
hair, takes a bath, and dons a dress. They fall
in love and live happily ever after.

Princess Gracie and her toad friend are
endearing characters and their squabbles and
attempts to escape their captors move the
story along. The story provides young readers
with a delightful tale as well as a valuable
lesson. It demonstrates how we should not
be too quick to judge a person by outward
appearances.

I own this book and it is absolutely adorable !
It's a wonderful book to have in a mother's hands, and the pictures are lots of fun too ~

You write children's books like my good friend on the den and in my life from way back when she lived near my cousin in PA. Bonnie May writes terrific children's stories too. If you have time, you might like to look into her site too. She has been a friend to me many years and also has a very bad heart condition she deals with daily too.
Reviewed by Larry Lounsbury 8/7/2007
I like the teaching that we ought not judge a book by its cover. The story sounds well written, with a beautiful Idyllic background that children will enjoy.
