Here’s another excellent book from another superb storyteller.
With no time to consult the books in the library, prepare a plan or collect provisions, Princess Anya is forced to start off on a dangerous, perhaps deadly, quest with only Ardent, one of the royal dogs, for company and support. As their journey progresses, the nature of the quest develops and grows until finally Anya accepts that only she can prevent a takeover by a group of wicked sorcerers. Frogkisser! is an exciting and entertaining modern twist on traditional fairytales by that master of storytelling Garth Nix.
