    I am enchanted by this series, and now I'm 1/2-way through. I don't ever want to leave this world - escapist fun at its most charming! If I had a daughter I would definitely buy these books for her, as the girl hero is brave, smart, not afraid of getting dirty or sweaty, but by no means perfect, either.

    In this installment we spend just a bit more time with some of the adults, and that's fun for me, because after all I haven't been the target age for these books in 4 decades. There's a bonus time travel element, but unfortunately it doesn't do anything interesting w/ paradoxes etc. Eadric becomes a bit stronger, as a character, too, which is nice.

    Once Upon a Curse by E.D. Baker is the third of the Frog Princess tales. Each curse Emma breaks seems to have further consequences. Her whole world is built on a foundation of curses. And now her aunt has fallen to the Green Witch curse, leaving Emma as the new witch and facing her own future doom.So Emma decides she needs to go to the source of her family's curse. That means going back in time to either prevent the curse or learn the ingredients.Emma's family curse is tied up in events very similar to Princess Aurora's curse. Rule one: don't short change a fairy. It seems like a simple fix, right? Let's just say the version of the curse that's been passed down the ages has been simplified.This is the book where the series finally addresses what exactly the Green Witch does for the kingdom and the castle. It's also the point where we learn that the curse might be justified.

    This book was amazing! The books make more sense now because i read no place for magic before this one and i understand it better. Well written, and i love Eadric's character.

    Rating: 4/5

    I picked up Once Upon a Curse from the library as an impulse read. I was unaware that it was part of a series, but I was in the mood for a cute, light-hearted read. I was not disappointed.

    Once Upon a Curse is a super cute and sweet middle grade fantasy novel about a witch princess named Emma trying to break the curse that has been placed on her family. Whenever anyone in her family touches a flower, they will turn into a crabby, ugly witch. I enjoyed the lightness of the read. Sometimes you just get tired of reading books whose themes are dark and heavy. I love reading middle grade because often times they are light and cute. This book did not disappoint! I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

    Tales of the Frog Princess, book 3.Princess Emma is anxious to marry Prince Eadric, but first she must undo the family curse that threatens to turn her into an evil hag. Grassina has already fallen victim to the curse, as has every Green Witch before her. Emma goes back in time to when the spell was cast to try to discover how to break it. Fans of the first two books in the series will like this one as well.

    Another enjoyable tale of the Frog Princess (though she's no longer a frog so it seems a bit odd to continue to call her that). In this adventure, Emma sets back in time in an attempt to end the curse that has stricken all the women in her family and will continue to strike them through the generations. I didn't feel like the time-travelling aspect of this was gimmicky at all, so that was nice. I did become a bit annoyed with Emma's meddling in past events after being told not to. I really liked the ending of this one - had a twist I wasn't expecting, so that was definitely welcome. The premise for number four doesn't sound as good, but I'll still give it a shot.

    book 3 in trilogy (1: the frog princess; 2: dragons breath) like the other two very funny, hilarious, quick and easy read
  • (4/5)
    Emma is now the Green Witch and has many resposiblilties, lime reversing her aunts terrible deeds. As her aunt gets eer nastier, Emma desperatly searches for a cure to the family curse. She travels back in time to meet her ancestors and of course Eadric comes along. They have many adventures in the past, but Emma is always thinking about breaking the curse because she knows that if there is even the slightest shance she might become like Aunt Grassina, she will have to refuse Eadrics proposal. I like this book a lot, and I'm sad to see the end of the series. I thought it was a surprising ending and it had me fooled. Certinatley a great read.

    Still more with Emma and Eadric. This was a little darker, and little more grown up, but still lots of fun. Grassina might have been a little over the top, but everything worked out well in the end. I can't wait until the fourth installment is out in paper.

    I liked this book, it is the 3rd in the series 'The frog Princess" and I found it delightful... Finally a book on time travel that didn't leave me in the warp!

    Emma is a Green Witch & Princess...who is engaged to Eadric, but she will only marry him if the Curse of the Green Witch (which has befallen all of her Green Witch ancestors...turning them into Snarky Hags) can be undone. For this she needs to go back in time to the day of the curse and witness its casting.

    The story is filled with a cast of delightful characters; Faeries, her Grandfather's ghost, her grand mother & Aunt Grassina (both former Green Witches), a bat named Lil, wizards and a dragon.

    I just might read the rest of the series "The Frog Princess" by Baker

    Mostly annoying. Time travel is so easy to mess up, and here Emma blithely ignores all the warnings about not changing things (except when she doesn't want to do something, then she remembers the warnings and keeps out). Of course, it turns out that apparently she was always there messing with events - and the story she knows, about her ancestress Hazel, is about 9/10ths false. I wonder what Millie's name is - if it's something green too? Bugsy is cute, both times. And the only problem with the solution is that it's something that could have happened, without them knowing about the details of the curse, at any time in the last...what, fifty years? But of course it didn't happen until after the adventure. Not a favorite, even in this fluffy series.
