Byron the Elf:...Now it's time for today's visit with...

S.L.: Today's story is one that I call, "The Frog Prince."

(SFX: Music box)

S.L.: Once upon a time in a kingdom far away, an evil witch put a curse on a handsome young prince, and turned him into a frog, telling him that he would remain a frog until a beautiful princess came along and gave him a kiss.

Many years passed, and then one day a lovely princess was skipping gaily along in the garden of her castle near a pond. All of a sudden she spied a frog on a lily pad.

"Oh, what a cute little froggy!" she exclaimed. And with that, she picked up the frog and gave it a kiss.

Instantly, she got a whole bunch of warts on her lips.

B: Thank you, Story Lady. Be listening next time, boys and girls, when The Story Lady tells the heartwarming story of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.
