-->'''Emma:''' If you don't have time to talk to me, I can come back later.
-->'''Curse!Grassina:''' Don't be silly. Of course I don't have the time.

Added DiffLines:

* [[BigLittleBrother Big Little Sister]]: Grassina to Chartreuse


Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsNotEvil: Garrid is a vampire who competes in a jousting tournament under the name "The Black Knight," but is a good guy.


Added DiffLines:

* SickeninglySweethearts: Haywood and Grassina. Even ''they'' realize how stupid they sound in ''Salamander Spell''.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Emma only has eyes for Eadric (though Eadric has loved a girl before Emma), Li'l and Garrid only have eyes for one another, and Grassina and Haywood... well, they were apart for over two decades and neither of them ever got together with someone else.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Emma mentions that Garrid's relatives in ''No Place For Magic'' have an odd accent. Judging by the audiobooks, the trope applies to Garrid himself.

A book series by ED Baker that was the [[AdaptationDecay very, very loose]] inspiration for ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. The books are, in order:

* ''The Frog Princess''
* ''Dragon's Breath''
* ''Once Upon a Curse''
* ''No Place For Magic''
* ''[[{{Prequel}} The Salamander Spell]]''
* ''The Dragon Princess''
* ''Dragon Kiss''
* ''A Prince Among Frogs''

The first four books in the series follow Princess Emeralda (AKA Emma), a tall, awkward, clumsy princess who constantly hides in the swamp to avoid her mother. There, she meets prince-turned-frog Eadric. During the first four books, Emma and Eadric fall in love, Emma comes into her abilities as a witch, and they end the curse that has been plaguing Emma's family. The fifth book is a prequel about Emma's aunt Grassina. The last three books are about Emma and Eadric's daughter Millie.

The series has ended, but the author has announced her intentions to make a spin-off about Millie's friends Zoe and Francis.
