Seventeen-year-old Johnny is approached at his family’s struggling shoe repair shop in a Miami, Florida, hotel by Alorian Princess Victoriana, who asks him to find her brother who was turned into a frog.

I love the way she blends old folk/fairy tales into a modern story line.  While it has been awhile since I’d heard any of these old stories, there were one or two she introduced that I had not heard before.  This is a great book with which to introduce those tales to a new generation.
