Full Description

Sir Frog and his fiancée, Lady Lily live happily in an enchanted pond. For Lady Lily’s birthday, Sir Frog wants to impress her with a very special present! Not far away, a princess with magical powers can transform a frog into a handsome prince with a single kiss. And so she does.

At first, Lady Lily is quite amused by the incredible surprise, but life in the pond can be hard if your beloved no longer has a sticky tongue to capture flies and a lily pad cannot hold his weight! Will they be able to adjust?

A classic tale of love that wonderfully and eloquently expresses a universal message: that to love and be loved, you have to be true to yourself.
