Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Finklehopper Frog is happily on his way to a picnic, but his excitement starts to fade as he spies Cat and his pal Itchy. Although he fears the teasing of others about his "groovy pork-pie hat," Frog sees his friend Ruby Rabbit and decides to go to the picnic anyway. Ruby diffuses the situation with her cheerful rapport. Later that day, Ruby needs encouragement to enter a race against Sue Kangaroo. This time Finklehopper Frog is the cheerleader for his pal. She tries her best but still comes in second. "No fair!" she cried. Livingston skillfully has Finkle point out that even though Sue Kangaroo wins the race, she can also have bad feelings when she sees Ruby Rabbit upset. The colorful illustrations on the inside cover of the book reveal a parade of animals, each with a different award around their neck. From the Teamwork award given to the group of ants, to the Best Effort medal presented to the snail, students are taught that everyone cannot always be first—but they can all be winners. Encouraging students to try their best and to have good sportsmanship, even when they do not win, are hard lessons to teach. The cartoon characters with their colorful clothing and outrageous expressions will hold students' attention. Winner of two prestigious awards, this picture book is a must for every primary classroom. 2005, Tricycle Press, $ 14.95. Ages 4 to 7.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-The protagonist in Finklehopper Frog (Tricycle, 2004) returns in a rhyming story that introduces three themes: overcoming fears, standing up to bullies, and being a good sport. The enthusiastic amphibian comes close to not attending the town picnic because he's afraid the others will make fun of his new hat. However, when Itchy Flea and Yowlereen start to tease him, his rabbit friend, Ruby, stands by him and thwarts the bullies with words instead of fists. Then she considers not entering a race because she is afraid that she can't beat Sue Kangaroo, but Finklehopper gives her a pep talk. Although the rabbit does her best, she comes in second, and the frog tells her how brave she was to try when she knew the competition was tough. Ruby recovers her composure, congratulates the winner, and everyone is satisfied. Richly colored acrylic paintings are filled with humorous details. For example, instead of shooting off a gun to begin the race, a cat sticks its claw into a balloon. Bright-blue skies, green grass and trees, and the general camaraderie of the animals help relate a few pleasant, easy-to-swallow lessons.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
