Overview

Can Cesar the tree frog find a warm home in the big city?

When Cesar the tree frog is forcibly removed from his home in the tropical wetlands, and relocated to the streets of New York City, he's in for the adventure of a lifetime. With B. Cider, a friendly spider, Cesar takes in the sights and sounds of the city, enjoying each glitzy moment as only a tree frog can--but soon our hero discovers that he's cold and that he misses his leaf. What's a poor tree frog to do?

With zany illustrations by David Catrow, Cesar's Amazing Journey will tickle the funny bone and have readers cheering for the little tree frog who finally finds the home he's been missing.

When the Florida palm tree he calls home is cut down and taken to New York, with him in it, a tree frog gets to experience life in the big city, but he is not happy until he finds a new home in the Bronx Zoo.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Cesar, a musical tree frog, is a happy inhabitant of the Florida wetlands until his tree is uprooted and put on a truck headed for New York City. So begins the amazing journey that he shares with an upbeat, rhyming arachnid named B. Cider, as in "Along came a spider and sat down... B. Cider!" Cesar, frightened and despondent, fears the big city but his new pal is an enthusiastic urbanite. From FAO Schwarz to Times Square to the Circle Line around Manhattan, they travel by bicycle, subway, and tourist bus at a frantic pace. The colder northern climate makes Cesar ill, but with the help of a kind little girl, he gets medical treatment and finds a new home in the rain-forest exhibit at the zoo. Policoff's story is original and well paced, though it may be a bit slick for younger children, who will need some explanation of the jokes. Older readers, however, will find the antics of B. Cider and Cesar hilarious. Catrow's illustrations are brazenly cartoonish-almost caricatures. Still, the little frog remains sympathetically endearing, and the pictures are well suited to the frenzy of the text. The colors and sights of the big city are beautifully captured as well. An unusual, humorous, fast-paced read-aloud.-Barbara Buckley, Jericho Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Talk Magazine
...Follow the adventures of Stephen Phillip Policoff's sensitive, plucky Floridian frog Cesar in Cesar's Amazing Journey. The amphibian-marooned-in-the-city tale was created by Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff and is illustrated handsomely by David Catrow.

    Policoff's Triumph...

    Here we are, in the age of 'Shrek', 'Toy Story', and a host of other films geared towards children, in which the adults can enjoy the ride as well. It makes perfect sense that the literary world would follow suit, and Stephen Policoff has written a witty, sophisticated tale that will cater to the young and old alike. Cesar's comical journey is engaging, there in an undeniable charm in the flow, and the illustrations are amazing. This is a highly recommended read, and would make a lovely Christmas gift for any bright, young child on your list.
