It's just black and white so the coloring is all DIY. Like all the fairy tales, this one has lots of tellings. I made this printable specifically to go with this version of the story.
And here's the short version with pictures and a few of my comments.
One day a princess was playing with her favorite golden ball by a pond...
when it fell in. (There is a slit in the pond that allows for this). A frog sitting nearby on a lily pad offered to get it, but for a price. She had to pledge her love, that they would share their meals and that he could sleep on her pillow. She agreed, but didn't really think she would have to put up with a frog.
The princess went home happily and forgot about the frog, until that evening just before dinner when there was a knock at the door.
The frog entered the dining hall with the king and the princess. The princess had to explain her deal. She begged the king to make the frog go away, but he reminded her how important it was to keep her word.
So they dined together.
The frog slept on her pillow.
In the morning the princess was amazed to find that a prince was on the pillow next to her, not the frog! He explained how an evil fairy had put a spell on him and how she had broken it by keeping her word.
And they all lived happily ever after.
