Praise for An Army of Frogs
"This little frog should find fans among readers of the Warriors and Redwall sagas."
"Pryce builds tension as the frogs figure out how to deploy their varied skills and reach the ancient turtle king who long ago placed a protective spell over their land. The violent but not overly graphic action is well matched by Greene’s dynamic and plentiful full-color illustrations."
"In this fast-paced tale, Pryce finds just the right balance between brutality and bravery, friendship and betrayal, and loss and discovery. A must-have, winning adventure that is nearly impossible to put down."
School Library Journal
"Greene’s color full-page illustrations have the richly saturated look of Marvel comic books, and there’s a superhero feel to the various fighting poses Darel and his pals take."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This clever fantasy series featuring frogs versus scorpions, set in Australia, makes for pleasant reading."

An action packed adventure Darel, an underdog frog, dreams of joining a fierce squad of fighters named the Kulipari. The squad hasn't been in action for a long time, because a protective magic has been cast over his village, the Amphibilands. Will the magic hold out when the evil scorpions come to take over? Or will Darel get his wish? In this fiction novel, there are courageous, friendly frogs who are led by the majestic turtle king in a quest to defend their home against the cunning, vile, and wicked scorpions, led by Lord Marmoo. Darel's best friend gets captured by the scorpions and Darel must sneak into their camp to save him. There are numerous battles and an action-packed war at the end. This novel also includes vibrant, attractive, and eye-catching illustrations. This book would appeal to both boys and girls from ages 6 and up. I gave this book 5 stars but would give it a thousand and one, if I could! Lila H., 9, Central Pennsylvania Mensa

My nine year old son picked out this book while on a trip. He's been reading it since the night he got it because, as he told me, he "doesn't want to read too fast and miss anything." His brother is eagerly awaiting his turn to read the book and they're both ready for me to buy book two.
