Eadric, the frog who claimed to be a prince - of course, convinces Emma, the Princess, to kiss him and break the spell. She does it reluctantly. The frog stays a frog, and Emma becomes a frog as well. This twist on the classic fairy tale takes us hopping through adventures as Emma, and Eadric, search for the witch who cast the spell, in the quest to become human again. This is the first book in the Tales of the Frog Princess series.

'The Frog with the Big Mouth' by Teresa Bateman is a story that will tickle anyone's funny bone. In this book's delightful verse and vivid illustrations, the young reader will find the antics of the Big Mouth Frog amusing. Here, we are introduced to many unusual creatures of the rain forest. We follow the Big Mouth Frog as he sets out to amaze and impress his fellow inhabitants with the news that he has eaten the BIGGEST fly in the world. He is positive that this amazing accomplishment makes him superior to them. In turn, each creature shows very little interest in the frog's bragging and continues on its way. But their failure to be impressed does not deter Frog from venturing further into the forest. Deep in the rainforest, The Big Mouth Frog, may or may not, find something that makes him a little more humble.

What do you do if you're bored at school, and nobody appreciates you at home? Well, Claudia Kincaid decides the only answer is to run away. She plans very carefully to be gone just enough time to teach her parents a lesson in 'Claudia appreciation'. She decides to hide at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and to take her brother Jamie along, because he's got more money than she does. While they're there, Claudia becomes intrigued by a statue that was recently sold to the museum. She believes that Michelangelo created it, but there is controversy around it, and the only person who knows the truth is Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, the person who sold it to the museum. Claudia and Jamie talk to Mrs. Frankweiler, an eccentric old woman, who decides to make a deal with Claudia and Jamie. This won the Newbery Medal in 1968.
