    1. I loved this book so much! I love this series, all the books are amazing! I can't wait to read the next book :)


    2. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!! i like it sooooo much more than "the frog princess". idk y, i think mostly becuz i knew wut happened to Grassina next, i knew that she and Haywood worked hard to get a happy ending, and that they both had a hard life.(until Grassina was the green witch) and mostly cuz Haywood IS SOOOOO SWEETTTTTT!!! GRASSINA IS SOOOOOO LUCKY, and when they met, there was a spark; but when emma and edric met no offense to edric but he was kinda a jerk. i didn't like it when Haywood and Gra [...]


    3. The Salamander Spell By: E.D. Baker Review By: Paige Tornow The Frog Princess Series is back with another amazing story. Emma's aunt Grassina stars in the book, The Salamander Spell. Grassina is about fifteen years old, and is living in her sisters shadow.ady. Her sister Chartreuce has it all. Looks, suitors, the kingdom, and even magic, or so it's thought. Life seems almost bearable for Grassina, until her parents have a fight. To make up for it. her father brings her mother a beautiful boquet [...]


    4. Cute and interesting prequel to the Tales of the Frog Princess. In this story, we read about Grassina and Chartreuse (Emma's aunt and mother) as they come of age. We see first-hand the transformation of Olivene into the wicked witch she is when the Tales of the Frog Princess first begin and the problems this causes for the kingdom. It was a nice change in perspective for the stories and I think Grassina was a good choice for the focus of the prequel. The one thing I was surprised to see was that [...]


    5. The book was okay. It was rather unnecessary, but I suppose it was fun seeing where the characters came from, and how they got to be what they were.The plot itself was sort of bland. Mostly it was just Grassina finding out something we already knew and its sort of frustrating that way. I just sort of wanted to shout "Your the Green Witch! Let's move on now." If there's anything I really liked about the book, it was the ending. The irony of their optimism and certainty was pretty great. So I thin [...]


    6. I think this is the best of the series yet!! Or at least, it's in the same rank as Once Upon a Curse!! I loved this one so much because it was unique and different from all the others. I loved how it went back before the first book, and took a look at Grassina's and Chartreuse's past. I never would have guessed that Chartreuse used to want to do magic; it seems really hard to believe that she hates it so much now! I love how the book showed how things came to be in the series of the Frog Princes [...]


    7. The Salamander Spell was a fun prequel about Grassina, how she became the Green Witch, and how she met Haywood. I enjoyed it, although the cheesy pet names Grassina and Haywood used drove me crazy! Also, I was annoyed that Grassina kept depending on Haywood's magic, even after she discovered her own. I wanted her to be a stronger heroine, instead of such a damsel in distress for so long. But, in spite of those faults, it was still an enjoyable light read. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes fan [...]


    8. This book tells the story of how Grassina became the Green Witch, and all the background of that generation. It was pretty interesting although I like the story line with Emma and Eadric a little better. Still a good book though.2017 edit- I really liked reading about Emma's parents and aunt while they were young. Changed from 3* to 4*.


    9. this book is a great romance comedy. usually i dont like to read but as soon as i opened this book i couldnt stop. this is by far MY FAVORITE BOOK EVER!!!!!!!MY favorite part was when grassina met haywood it was soooo cute. HAVE FUN READING



    10. This was a fun book in a series I've been enjoying with my children. It was not exactly as we'd expected, but still enjoyable. It was a little disappointing that we always knew the big events which would be coming, even the one that happens after the end of the book. However, it was a quick, easy read, engaging and great for fans of the frog princess.



    11. Fun prequel novel to the Princess and the Frog books Emalee and I have been reading together. Answers some questions and focuses on one of my favorite characters from the first four novels.




    12. A duller and far more predictable part of The Tales Of the Frog Princess Series. Mostly this has to do with the already well--established family dysfunctions that each of the previous books have described in various ways and on various levels. Chartreuse's lifelong hatred of Grassina begins long before this book is written and the two sisters stay locked in that disrespectful power-struggle throughout this book, as well, despite the fact they, effectively, lose both of their parents and are abru [...]


    13. This book is the prequel to a bunch of other books, but I never read them, and it read fine on it's own. For what it was. Which is a VERY young teen book. Maybe even a children's book.Grassina is the second fiddle princess to her sister Chartruese, in the Kingdom of Greensward. Noticing a pattern, yet? Don't - that's pretty much as far as it goes. Except to say that Greensward has always been protected from mythological creatures by a good Green Witch: usually the first born of the girls in the [...]


    14. Probably more of a 2.5. But anyway, Its been about five years since I finished the original four Frog Princess books so I can't really compare them to this prequel. I remember I did like them, and I was expecting to like this too but I was disappointed. This book also pales in comparison to A Question of Magic, E.D. Baker's version of Baba Yaga that just came out.I spent most of the book waiting for the story to begin. It felt like I was reading a perpetual introduction and I couldn't wait for t [...]


    15. I am re-reading this favourite series as a comfort measure. Still hormonally over-sensitive from the birth of my fifth child, I need to safe reassurance of the known.I like the humour of this series. The Salamander Spell is the fifth book of The Tales of the Frog Princess series but chronologically preceeds the first book, The Frog Princess. After my first reading of the series, I felt that the books are best read in the publishing order and that is how I am re-reading them. However, 3/4 of the [...]


    16. I love all the "Tales of the Frog Princess" books! As soon as i heard that there was going to be a prequel i was really excited! Although, i think that E.D.Baker is spacing the books out a little to far. the prequel is about Grassina and Haywood. Then the next book is about Grassina's neice(princess Emma). If you ask me i think that the prequel should have been about princess Emma as a child. E.D.Baker doesn't really talk about Emma as a child ever. I think it would have been nice to hear at lea [...]


    17. Reviewed by Jeremey for TeensReadTooNo, this is not a story about Princess Emeralda and Prince Eadric. This new story, which is a prequel to THE TALES OF THE FROG PRINCESS, visits Princess Emeralda's aunt a teenager! Living in Greater Greensward with her mother, father, and sister, Chartreuse, Grassina is not expected to do much. Chartreuse was first born, which means she will be both Queen and Green Witch. All Grassina is expected to do is to marry a prince. When the King gives their mother a b [...]


    18. A prequel to Tales of the Frog Princess. Grassina, as the second oldest princess, is told she must content herself to her life as it is, while her older sister Chartreuse is trained to rule the kingdom. But when a curse turns their mother, The Green Witch, into a disagreeable hag, Grassina finds unexpected means and powers to help defend the kingdom from lurking threats. A charming book, and one I had no trouble following despite never had read any of the other books in the series. It's for pret [...]


    19. This book is a prequel to the events in the series Tales of the Frog Princess. Princess Chartreuse and Princess Grassina live with Queen Olivene and King Aldrid in Greater Greensward. The queen is trying to teach Chartreuse the ways of magic to prepare her for becoming the next queen and the Green Witch but she has yet to show any magic. There are also a bunch of suitor princes in the castle, vying to marry the two princesses. The family curse changes the queen into a mean hag, leaving the kingd [...]


    20. I was disappointed by this book. I enjoyed the other "Frog Princess" books. Although the writing was always just good and never great, it was fun, light reading with enough clever twists to keep me engaged.This book was supposed to be the prequel to the Frog Princess series. Maybe I don't understand how prequels are supposed to work. But, I really felt like she had explained so much of what would happen in this story in her other books, that making this story into a whole book was pretty pointle [...]


    21. Things just seemed to happen randomly in this book, starting with when Grassina's mother turned into a hag. It was just completely out there, and the curse hadn't been mentioned prior to it happening (plus, it seemed like a really random curse) and it was never explained. Things happened for no reason. The title doesn't make a whole lot of sense because the spell concerning the salamander was just a small part of the story at the end. It also seemed like the author added stuff because she couldn [...]


    22. Hi!!!Ok. So this is the 5th book in the series. I first found out about this series because my school librarian recomended it to me. This book is a very good book. If you have read the series then you know that in this book they are going back in time (The first 4 books are based on Emma this one is based on her aunt Grassina when she was young). So in this book you are going to find out how she realized she had magic and later began the Green Witch of Greater Greensward. This is a series for an [...]


    23. A prequel to the series.Grassina: a young princess. 2nd daughter. Loves nature.Chartreuse: older sister who will become queen and the Green Witch, though she hasn't shown any signs of magic.Pippa: a talking, venomous snake who is Grassina's friend.Haywood: a boy wizard who lives on the marsh island. Befriends Grassina when she runs away.He uses his red salamander to light fires to rid enemy monsters.A spell has overcome her mother who now is a crazy witch an no longer the Green Witch.Dragons and [...]


    24. This is the most recent in a series of books called “The Tales of the Frog Princess”. Princess Grassina is living the easy life with her mother, father, and sister, Chartreuse. Being the younger sister, Grassina is not expected to do very much except stay out of trouble while her older sister is expected to inherit her mother’s magical powers and become the Queen and the Green Witch of Greater Greensward. To everyone’s horror, a terrible curse turns their mother from a good witch to a ba [...]


    25. of course all seven of my books on hold come at the same time, but this was a very easy read. Read it in two nights. Would have been one, but I was tired. I like to have an easy read once in awhile. Besides the Salamander Spell not really being made known until near the end of the book, I really enjoyed the orginial and cute story. Though it had enough violence in it so make it not very cutesy. There is even a metaphor there with the salamander spell. There were some spots that seemed rushed and [...]


    26. Fantasy is a good escape from what you _should_ be doing - especially with the (slim) excuse of keeping track of what your child is reading.E.D. Baker's creativity continues to take the fairy tale creatures and spin them out in a new, vibrant world. The family dramas and disagreements make this accessible, the adventures make it fun, and the romance is sweet. (The books have convinced by 8-year-old that romance in real life is gross, but romance in books is fun. A classmate she's had a "crush" o [...]
