Editorial Reviews

Washington Post
Bently, a veritable Indiana Jones of his species. . .
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Bently is a talented frog who loves to sing as well as paint. His dearest friend, Kack Kack the duck, asks him to guard her precious egg. Feeling deserted, Bently entertains himself by using the egg as a canvas for the latest Bently Hopperton original. His charge is egg-napped, mistaken for an Easter egg. Bently goes on a harrowing (and humorous) mission to retrieve the egg. The story is a celebration of the responsibility of friendship and the rewards of steadfast devotion. William Joyce, author of many books including Dinosaur Bob and his Adventures with the Family Lazardo, has produced another original, compelling adventure with magical illustrations.

    Outstanding book!

    This is one of my favorite picture books of all time. The illustrations are gorgeous. The story is wonderful, humorous, and uplifting. I wish they'd make this book into a movie!
