“The Queen of the Frogs” by: Davide Cali Illustrations by: Marco Soma

I could not resist checking out this stunningly illustrated fable.

The story was cute and the art had some old world style type of charm. It reminded me of 1920s style in design along with some steampunk style on the lights and lanterns.

I loved how the crown ended up being *spoiler alert* a ring. I used to have a ring that looked like a crown so that made me smile.

The moral of course could be read as power is fleeting. Also that those in power shouldn’t be so holier-than-thou because their “crown” can fall off any moment and then what will they do?

Super cute overall.
