"The pages are broken in half."
Why, yes, the next five pages are split in half, so while the frog tries to get his spell right from all the scraps he created turning the book into a boat and then a castle, your child (or you if you don't have one and love storybooks) gets to see all the creatures Frog turns himself into as he tries to put the Handsome Prince spell back together. The inside cover says this book is for ages 4 to 8, but I think this book would be fun for any age of child. I shared it with my thirteen-year-old son and he laughed out loud.
This book has a cute ending that lets the reader know that in the end, one can't be anyone but who one truly is.
Bravo, Emily Gravett for this clever and beautifully illustrated story.
