Description

The magical adventures of a small boy who helps a frog turn back into a prince, and is rewarded with a visit to the Frog Castle. Here, in an Alice-in-Wonderland story where dreams and reality are intertwined and time is turned on its head, he meets a little princess called Aurora, a wicked lord chamberlain, a bold queen and a kind king whose heart is stolen away. Characterised by the charm and innocence that so many readers loved in Hello? Is Anybody There?, The Frog Castle confirms Jostein Gaarder as a wonderful storyteller whose special gift is to open children's eyes to the great mysteries.show more
