What do you do when a curse is genetic and comes around puberty? You rebel like a proper teenager would and look for the cure. Which is even more fun when being around the family members who are infected with the curse, which in nice words, turns a kind person into a big grumpy as- jerk.

This book reads for later teens, it's more wordy and written curiously. I found my attention drifting and had to set it aside and return it to the library for a later date. It's not bad, it's more I didn't expect to need to pay so much attention to things written, a single sentence not taken in makes for a confusing page, or minor details make for a dozen questions if you really think on them. Definitely not for little kids unless they're fully invested. ( )

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. ( )

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. ( )

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 ( )

The book is dedicated to Ellie for being my first reader and critic, to Kimmy for being so supportive and to Nate and Emiko for their enthusiasm. I would also like to thank Victoria Wells Arms for her questions and insight.
