    Comments:
    I like this story because it has a lot of adventures, funny events and suspense. It’s like a fairytale; unique, fun and fancy. When I read it, I felt like I was actually in that story because it has a lot of details and feeling in it. If you like fancy and romantic story, this book is right for you.
    My favorite part of the story is when Esmeralda becomes a frog. She learns how to catch a bluebottle, roll the tongue and some weird things that she never does. It’s very embarrassing, disgusting, but funny. I recommend this page-turning story to anyone who likes adventure and fairytale. The suspense is especially noticeable during the adventure of escaping from the witch. It will take your breath away. I would recommend this novel for teenagers age around 9 – 15 years old.
