ONCE UPON A CURSE - E D Baker


This is third in a cute faery story series. Emma is a princess who is also the Green Witch. Which means she is charged with the care of the realm. She's fairly happy even though she is an only daughter and her mother despairs of her actions and lack of style and general clumsiness in the past.
There's a catch to Emma's life, though. If she should touch a flower of any type after her 16th birthday, she turns into an evil hag witch until the kiss of a true love touches her lips. It's affected the Green Witch in her family for hundreds of years. Currently, her grandmother and aunt are in this predicament.
Emma decides to do something about stopping the curse and that is the story, short and sweet. She can talk to animals because she'd been turned into a frog in the first of the series. This is she met her honey, Prince Eidrick, who had also been turned into a frog.
Very sweet and funny story, highly recommendable for short and sweet listen or read.

I am doing something fun. Well, at least I think it is. I'd like to start posting the participating members favorite book for each month on the blog. Mine is already up for January. Send me your favorite book and author of the book for January. As soon as this month is over, I’ll post one for February.
