|Plot Summary of The Prince of the Pond|
An ordinary frog in an ordinary pond stumbles across something extraordinary: a fellow frog struggling out from a pile of human clothes! Although most frogs don't try to help each other (it isn't the froggy way) Jade takes pity on the newcomer. Pin is pathetically unable to manage himself. He can't jump, doesn't know predators from prey, and hates the very idea of eating flies!
In fact, the frog is a prince who has been transformed by a witch's evil spell. Together Pin and Jade embark on a journey to restore his human form while avoiding the witch, who likes to eat frogs for dinner.
This is a re-telling of the fairy tale "The Frog Prince." It contains brief, matter-of-fact descriptions of frogs mating.
