About 'Theo's princess'
Theo had always heard stories about a princess kissing a frog, who then turned into a prince. He wished that one day a cute princess would turn him into a prince too.
A cute modern twist to an commonly known story.
Everybody knows about the classical Grimm brothers story, about a princess that kissed a frog, who then turned into a handsome prince. This made me think of a self confident frog, with a posh name, who wants to be a prince too. The frog actively searches to find a princess that will make his wish come true. But than he falls in love and totally forgets that he wanted to become a prince.
About the illustrator
Monty Lee is an artist living in sunny Australia. Growing up with two artistic parents, there was never a shortage of art supplies or creativity. The old creaking family home was filled with the most extraordinary books, providing an inspiration that set Monty off on her journey as an illustrator. Always eager to embrace the art of imagination you could, and still can, find her reading books or strolling around in art galleries. Her fascination with children’s picture books has certainly not diminished over the years, with her house now bursting with books from all over the world. When she is not printing or painting, she is illustrating.
