Prince Harold suffers the sad fate of the second born son of a king. While there are plenty of men happy to get up close and personal with him, no one wants to marry him when there’s a chance of marrying his brother and becoming the partner of the ruler of the land. In his sadness his erection dies and his cock ring falls into the pond. A frog appears and I’m sure you can work out roughly what happens thereafter.

Warning. Put down all beverages, before picking up this story.
This is a very short little story and written very much tongue in cheek. It has some brilliant humor and cleverly deprecating lines by some of the cast. The frog is brilliantly portrayed (gotta love a frog!) and his repetitious little ditty does an excellent job of providing humor while drawing a nifty parallel to all those once- upon-a-time stories that seem really cheesy to the adult who has to read them to the enraptured little person. A super quick read but one that you’ll come back to again and again because of the satire. I found myself saying, “Did he really say that? He couldn’t possibly have said that. Yes, he said it.”

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
