  2. I like this book because it`s funny. The main character is Marty Maguire. When she gets a part of a princess in the play she doesn`t understand why she, Marty Maguire, lover of frogs got chosen as a princess. But when she looks on the bright side, she relizes that she might make a good princess.(At least she gets to kiss a frog!) This book is funny because Veronica Grace Smithers screams when she sees frogs.
