Once upon a time there was a king lived with his beautiful princess who had a golden ball. One day, while playing in the garden, the ball fell into a pond. She was very upset and did not know what to do. While she sat there crying helplessly, a frog hopped out of the pond and asked, “Why are you crying, little princess?” She told him about her golden ball. The ugly frog said, “I can help you get your ball but what will you give me in return?” “I will give you any-thing you want!” promised the princess. The frog immediately leaped into the water and fetched the ball for princess. The princess was very happy. The frog reminded her, “Remember that you promised me for anything. Well, I want to be your friend, eat from your plate, and sleep in your palace!” The princess hated the idea but she agreed and ran back to the palace.
The next morning, the princess found the frog waiting for her. He said, “I have come to live in your palace.” Hearing this, the princess ran to her father, crying. When the generous king heard about the promise, he told his daughter, “A promise is a promise and you must keep your word. You must let the frog stay in your palace.” The princess was very angry but she had no choice and let the frog stay. The frog ate from her plate during dinner and asked the princess to take him to her bed at night. The princess picked him up angrily and threw him to the floor.
In a flash, the frog turned into a handsome prince! He told the princess that he had actually been under the spell of a wicked magician. The princess fell in love with the prince. They were married and lived happily ever after.
