The Frog Prince has his moment to shine in this epic tale of kingdom building. Despite the grandeur of the saga there is still much heart and more than a touch of whimsy to it. It is also very Arthurian in content and feel. There is a break in the middle with Snow and the Cubs providing some welcome relief from the serious tones.
The art is quality stuff with Buckingham drawing the whole thing apart from the cartoon style of the second tale. No fancy trickery is needed as the story is colourful enough.
