"The course of true love never did run smooth."
("A Midsummer Night's Dream" — William Shakespeare)

Stand aside, Mr. Darcy. Keep walking, Rhett Butler. There's a new romantic hero in town. And, though he may not have all the ladies in the valley swooning with desire, he sure knows how to pitch the woo.

Iza Trapani does it once again in this favorite song about a lovesick frog and his search for the perfect missus with her exquisitely charming and truly funny illustrations that explore the lighter side of romance. Even Jane Austen would have to bow to this most amiable and irresistible story. After all, you might have to kiss a frog to find a prince.
