Frog Who Wears a Rose Leaf Crown

I live in a tent, on an island, in a pond in the middle of a magnificent garden. My skin is as green as grass and I wear a rose leaf on my head instead of a crown. I may be a frog, but I know who I actually am, and I am actually not a frog. I am a princess, and the lion who lives in the palace that stands in the garden is not actually a lion. He is a prince.

We’ve both been put under a spell, and we’ll both need to die to go back to the people we truly are!
