A clever frog and a prac­ti­cal princess match wits in Jonathan Em­mett’s Prince Rib­bit, a smart new take on the clas­sic frog-prince fairy tale that play­fully chal­lenges the no­tions of fact and fic­tion, logic and lore. Il­lus­tra­tor Poly Ber­natene per­fectly por­trays the bal­ance, in­te­grat­ing fan­ci­ful bro­cades and time­less cas­tles with science texts, a be­spec­ta­cled princess, and, of course, one af­fa­ble am­phib­ian, who may or may not be a prince await­ing true love’s kiss.
