Frogkisser! Out Late February 2017

Poor Princess Anya. Forced to live with her evil stepmother’s new husband, her evil stepstepfather. Plagued with an unfortunate ability to break curses with a magic-assisted kiss. And forced to go on the run when her stepstepfather decides to make the kingdom entirely his own.

Aided by a loyal talking dog, a boy thief trapped in the body of a newt, and some extraordinarily mischievous wizards, Anya sets off on a Quest that, if she plays it right, will ultimately free her land-and teach her a thing or two about the use of power, the effectiveness of a well-placed pucker, and the finding of friends in places both high and low.

Frogkisser! Frogkisser!

“Nix . . . masterfully infuses the weight of first recognizing one’s privilege with humor. Great fun with heart.”

– Kirkus Reviews, starred review


“With wonderfully inventive creatures, challenging vocabulary, and a captivating story, this fantasy is recommended as a first purchase for YA collections.”

– School Library Journal, starred review


“Nix has stirred up an intoxicating brew in Frogkisser!”
