Review - The Hog Prince by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen

Title: The Hog Prince

Series:: None

Author(s):: Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen

Genre:: Children's Book

Summary: A confuzzled fairy tells a hog if he kisses his true love he will become a prince

Finished: 04/7/09

Pages: 32

Challenges: none


My Thoughts: A retelling of The Frog Prince, but instead of a frog, a fairy gets confused and thinks it is a hog that is really the prince in disguise. All the hog has to do to become a prince is kiss his true love, or so the fairy thinks. This is a quaint retelling with a sweet ending, and the artwork is excellent.
