Staff Review: Enchanted by Alethea Kontis

Why I checked it out: I love novels that incorporate a variety of fairy tales into the story.

Why I liked it:Enchanted” includes themes from “Cinderella”, “Rumplestiltskin”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, and “The Frog Prince.” Sunday is the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter. She is a writer/storyteller who meets an enchanted frog and falls in love with him. She gives him a quick kiss goodbye one day then hurries off with her brother. The frog returns to his former shape as a prince, but instead of finding Sunday and telling her he was the frog, he tries to woo her as a man. His father, the king, has some secrets of his own that add complications and excitement to the story.

Three words that describe this book: funny, exciting, romantic

Similar books include:Dealing With Dragons” by Patricia Wrede, “Breadcrumbs” by Anne Ursu, “Howl’s Moving Castle” by Diana Wynne Jones, and “Dragon Slippers” by Jessica Day George.
