The Frog Prince – read aloud short story book video stories online one evening a young princess put on her bonnet and clogs and went out to take a
walk by herself in a wood and when she came to a cool spring of water
that rose in the midst of it she said herself down to rest a while now she had a golden ball in her hand
which is her favorite plaything and she was always tossing it up into
the air and catching it again as it fell after a time she threw it up so high
that she missed catching it as it fell and the ball bounded away and rolled
along upon the ground too at last it fell down into the
spring the princess looked into the spring after
her ball but it was very deep so deep that she
could not see the bottom of it then she began to bewail her loss and
said alas if I could only get my ball again I
would give all my fine clothes and jewels and everything that I have in the world while she was speaking a frog put its
head out of the water and said princess why do you leave so
bitterly alas said she what can you do for me you
nasty frog my golden ball has fallen into the spring the frog said I want not your pearls and jewels and fine clothes but if you will
love me and let me live with you and eat from
your golden plate and sleep upon your bed I will bring you
your ball again What nonsense thought the princess this silly frog is talking he can never even get out of the spring to
visit me though he may be able to get my ball for me and therefore I will tell him he shall
have what he asks so she said to the frog well if you will
bring me my ball I will do all you ask then the frog put his head down and
dived deep under the water and after a little while he came up
again with the ball in his mouth and threw it
on the edge of the spring at soon as the young princess saw her
ball she ran to pick it up and she was so
overjoyed to have it in her hand again that she never thought of the frog but
ran home with it as fast as she could the frog called after her stay princess and take me with you as you said but she
did not stop to hear a word the next day just as the princess had
sat down to dinner she heard a strange noise tap tap plash plash as if something was
coming up the marble staircase and soon afterwards there was a gentle
knock at the door and a little voice cried out and said
open the door my princess dear open the door to thy true love here and mind the words that thou and I said
by the fountain cool in the Greenwood shade then the princess ran to the door and
opened it and there she saw the frog whom she had
quite forgotten at this sight she was sadly frightened
and shutting the door as fast as she could came back to her seat the King her father seeing that
something had frightened her asked her what was the matter there is a nasty frog said she at the door that lifted my ball for me
out of the spring this morning I told him that he should live with me
here thinking that he could never get out of the spring but he is at the door and he wants
to come in while she was speaking the frog knocked
again at the door and said open the door my princess dear open the door to thy true love here and mind the words that thou and I
said by the fountain cool in the Greenwood shade then the king said to the young princess
as you have given your word you must keep it so go and let him in she did so and the frog hopped into the
room and then straight on tap tap plash plash from the bottom of the
room to the top till he came up close to the table where
the princess sat pray lift me upon chair said he to the
princess and let me sit next to you as soon as she had done this the frog
said put your plate nearer to me that I may eat
out of it this she did and when he had eaten as much as he
could he said now I am tired carry me
upstairs and put me into your bed and the princess though very unwilling took him up in her hand and put him upon the pillow of her own bed where he slept all night long as soon as it was light he jumped up hop
downstairs and when out of the house now then thought the princess at last
he is gone and I shall be troubled with him no more but she was mistaken for when night came again she heard the
same tapping at the door and the frog came once more and said open the door my princess dear open the
door to thy true love here and mind the words that thou and I said
by the fountain cool in the Greenwood shade and when the princess opened the door
the frog came in and slept upon her pillow as before till
the morning broke and the third night he did the same but when the princess awoke on the
following morning she was astonished to see instead of the frog a handsome prince gazing on her with the most beautiful
eyes she had ever seen and standing at the headed of her bed he told her that he had been enchanted
by a spiteful fairy who had changed him into a frog and that
he had been fated so to abide till some princess should take him out of the
spring and let him eat from her plate and sleep
up on her bed for three nights you said the prince have broken his
cruel charm and now I have nothing to wish for but
that you should go with me into my father’s kingdom where I will marry you and love you as
long as you live the young princess you may be sure was not long in saying yes to all this and as they spoke again a gay coach drove
up with eight beautiful horses decked with
plumes of feathers and a golden harness and behind the Coach rode the Prince’s
servant faithful Heinrich who had bewailed the
misfortunes of his dear master during his enchantment so long and so
bitterly that his heart had well-nigh burst they then took leave of the king and got
into the coach with eight horses and all set out full of joy and
merriment for the prince’s Kingdom which they
reached safely and there they lived happily a great
many years
