Frogkisser! by Garth Nix - ADVISABLE

Nix, Garth Frogkisser! 384 pages.  Scholastic, March 2017.  Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (danger, some fighting).

Princess Anya’s stepfather is becoming more evil every single day.  Its only a matter of time before he decides to rid himself of Anya and her sister Morven, the Queen to be, for good.  When Morven’s latest suitor is turned into a frog by their stepfather, it is Anya who has to go on a quest to find the elusive ingredients to a lip balm that will break the spell on any transformed being even without true love’s kiss. 

While you might think E.D. Baker at first, the similarities are there, but Nix’s work is not as light.  This is more Vivian VandeVelde of Patricia Wrede stuff.
