FROGKISSER! by Garth Nix

frogkisser

The story: What starts out as a simple quest to fix a boy turned into a frog ends up as a mission to conquer an evil sorcerer and take back the kingdom. Anya doesn’t have magical powers, but she does have a talking dog, and flying carpet, and a group of helpers who make it possible…just barely…that she might succeed! If she doesn’t get slimed by a newt, drowned in a sewer, or rumbled by Bad Robbers first. (Because yes, of course, there are also Good Robbers in this story. and Good Wizards. And lots of folks who’ve been turned into frogs, which is why you need a Frogkisser after all.)

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Fantasy readers should grab this one immediately, and keep an eye out for a hinted-at sequel.
