The Princess and the Frog

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who had a golden ball. She lived in a palace with her father, the king, and her seven sisters. Everyday she played with her ball in the garden of the palace. At the end of the garden, there was a dark lake. When the weather was hot, the princess liked playing near the lake.

Unfortunately, one day she dropped her golden ball into the water. She was very unhappy and she sat on the grass and started to cry. Suddenly, she heard a voice, "don't cry, princess." She opened her eyes and saw a large green frog.

"Oh please help me!" she said, "I can't get my ball."
"I will help you," said the frog, "if I come and stay with you in the palace."

"Yes, of course I promise," said the princess. So the frog jumped into the water and came back with the ball. The princess laughed and took the ball. She ran quickly back to the palace and forgot all about the frog. The frog was very angry. He followed the princess into the palace and told his story to the king.

"A promise is a promise," said the frog. "Yes," said the king and called his daughter. "Honour your promise, my daughter. Take this frog to your own room and look after him carefully. The princess cried bitterly but took the frog and put him on her bed. The frog looked at her closely and said softly, "please, greet me, princess," she closed her eyes and greeted him. All of a sudden, the frog turned into a handsome prince. Of course, he and the princess fell in love. One week later, they got married and live happily ever after.
