Description de l’éditeur
Things are not what they may seem;
A nightmare may become a dream.
Night is day and slow is swift;
What seems a curse may be a gift.
In the title story, “The Princess Who Sang Like a Frog”, a princess leaves her home after a public humiliation, certain she does not deserve happiness. Armed only with poetry and music, she ventures into the unknown to seek the mystery of her unusual identity. As she travels, she encounters wise teachers who encourage her to see her troubled past in a new light. By the end of her journey, she discovers a profound truth which will guide her for the rest of her life.
Other stories in this sparkling collection include “The Yellow Bird”, in which a disconsolate king discovers the healing power of shared grief; “The Woodcutter’s Daughter”, a tale of acceptance, forgiveness, love, and the cyclical nature of life; and “The Joyfish”, a story of true love, magic fish, and rebirth.
In The Princess Who Sang Like a Frog and Other Tales of Love, author Callie Cardamon conjures all the wonder, magic, and happy endings of classic fairy tales, but with the insight and wisdom to help us navigate our modern times with strength, resilience, trust, and kindness.
