Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
A big wide-mouthed frog hops arrogantly through this book asking various animals who they are and what they eat. He asks Big Thumping Feet the kangaroo, who eats grass. He asks Mr. Big Nose, the koala, Upside-down Creature, the possum, and Three Long Toes, the Emu. When he finally asks Knobby Brown Log, the crocodile, he is surprised to learn that the crocodile eats big wide-mouthed frogs. Of course, the hero of this story suddenly decides that he really is a small, narrow-mouthed frog. This story is promoted as a traditional tale but unfortunately, no credit is given for the tale's origin.

PreS-K-The wide-mouthed frog sets off to see the world and asks each animal he meets, "Who are you, and what do you eat?" When a crocodile replies that she likes to eat wide-mouthed frogs, the little fellow suddenly becomes a "small narrow-mouthed frog" and hops away. The text is simple but filled with dialogue, making this a natural for toddler time. The story is well paced, featuring new animals on each two-page spread, with nicknames like Big Thumping Feet, Three Long Toes, etc. The bright, lively illustrations have a minimum of detail and show a variety of smiling animals in primary colors. A fun choice for storyhours or one-on-one sharing.-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
