Why was the prince turned into a frog and not any other animal? -I think that the prince was turned into a frog and not any other animal because the fairy who had cast the spell on the prince would have known that the spell can only be broken if the prince stayed with a princess who took him out of the spring, for 3 days and ate out of her plate. The fairy would have also known that most princesses are not very fond of frogs. So, the fairy must have thought that the chance of the prince being with the prince was pretty low.
Why didn’t the princess just get another golden ball?
-I think that the princess didn’t just ask the king for another golden ball was because she was probably scared that she might get into big trouble. Because even if they are rich, the king would have yelled at the princess, because playing with golden balls is no joke. King or no king, golden balls are very expensive.
If the princess really loved objects made of gold why would she offer the frog all her jewels? -I think that the princess offered the frog her jewels because it said that the golden ball was her favourite toy and she would rather give away her jewels, than lose her precious golden ball.
Why did the king ask the princess to keep her promise?
-I think that in this fairy tale the king symbolizes a person who lives on their principles. “A promise made must be kept” or maybe the king had known or heard about a prince who had been turned into a frog and also that the spell can only be broken if the prince eats and stays with a princess for three days.
Why didn’t the princess just make up a story to tell to his father, instead of telling him the truth? -I think that the princess didn’t lie to her father because she knew that if he found out the truth from another source, he would be hurt. Or maybe it was the bond between every father and daughter that made the princess tell her father the truth.
