Overview

"A genuinely funny, unshakably adorable set of stories about a creative little girl and her mischievous animal pals." —The A.V. Club

The whole gang is reunited in Anna and Froga: Thrills, Spills, and Gooseberries. Join Anna, Froga, Ron, Bubu, and Christopher as they get stuck in the haunted house at the county fair with a truly terrifying ticket-taker; as Froga combats a scourge of snails in her garden; and as Bubu has ill-fated dreams of being a great painter.
With this third volume of Anna and Froga, Anouk Ricard experiments with the format, never sacrificing a droll punch line or a hilarious image. Anna and Froga is a true delight for children, parents, and grown-up children alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Anna and Froga and all their friends are the most perfect combination of unbelievably adorable and total jerks. Anouk Ricard is a genius!” —Sara Varon, author of Robot Dreams, Chicken & Cat, and Bake Sale

“The art is just flat-out beautiful and there's something about the way Froga is drawn that is hilarious every time you see her.” —Vice

K-Gr 3—Bright illustrations lend a feeling of whimsy and joy to this collection of short comics about a girl and her animal friends. The dialogue shows a range of emotions from friendship to frustration to sarcasm, providing a level of believability to the relationships of the characters. The short nature and familiar situations of each strip allows young or reluctant readers the opportunity to quickly finish a complete story line. Whether needing peace and quiet, growing vegetables, or visiting a fair, normal experiences bring a sense of camaraderie to the narrative. However, the lack of continuance of some scenes may cause annoyance or confusion. Readers will easily find a character to which they can relate. VERDICT A cute, colorful, and overall enjoyable introduction to comics and graphic novels.—Elizabeth Speer, Cisco College, TX
