The Robe of Skulls by Vivian French

syndetics-lcLooks may be deceiving with this title! The Robe of Skulls by Vivian French may look creepy, but it is really a lighthearted fantasy.  Lady Lemorna wants a new dress but doesn’t have the money to pay for it so she comes up with a crazy plan to turn some princes into frogs and make their parents pay her to turn them back.  Only Prince Marcus escapes being turned into a frog, and now he must save his brother with the help of some talking bats and a brave new friend.  If you enjoy funny stories about princes, magic, and adventures, this book is for you!
