Overview

It's a special occasion, so Froggy and his parents are going to eat dinner in a fancy restaurant. When they arrive at the restaurant, Froggy's mom has a few rules for him: "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table." But it's so hard for Froggy to sit still. He fidgets, he squirms, and he sssllluuuurrrrpppps his spaghetti. Then he spots Frogilina across the restaurant-now it's impossible for Froggy to follow the rules!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sprinkled with wonderful sound effects, the text is well paced for read-alouds, and the bright, cartoonlike drawings nicely illustrate Froggy's irrepressible energy." -Booklist

"An excellent contribution to the Froggy canon." -School Library Journal

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Froggy flip-flops through another affable adventure as he joins his parents for their anniversary dinner at a fancy restaurant. Used to fast-food joints, he must wash and dress up. He must behave. However, the little frog cannot control himself. Mayhem ensues, and the family ends up eating burgers and flies at Speedy's fast-food restaurant. Full of onomatopoeia, the language is fast paced and fun. Remkiewicz's drawings bring the lovable protagonist and his world to brightly colored light. An excellent contribution to the "Froggy" canon.-Kate McLean, DeKalb County Public Library, Tucker, GA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The latest Froggy from London is as much fun as its predecessors to read aloud, with all its zips, zwits, and zoops. In this episode, Froggy is going to a fancy restaurant with his parents to celebrate their anniversary. First he must get dressed in his best duds (that's where all those zips and zoops come in). Then it's off to Chez Yum, a swanky spot where his mother cautions him to "be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table." Of course, Froggy being Froggy, that's like asking the wind to stop rustling the leaves. He licks salt off his hand, bangs spoons on the table, sucks on sugar cubes, plucks the petals off the flowers in the vase on his table. But really, like, where's the food already? And when it finally arrives, shortly after Froggy has broken into a low-blood-sugar-inspired bit of soft shoe across the restaurant floor, he catches the eye of a pretty young frog friend and proceeds to drag the tablecloth, food and all, off the table and onto his head. Well, there you are: One doesn't have to espouse fast-food establishments to caution that a fancy restaurant might not be the place to take a hungry kid, even if that kid likes raw flies best of all. Splat! Ssllluuuurrrrpppp! Bonk! —it's impossible not to like Froggy, though you may not want to take him home. (Picture book. 2-6)

We read this Froggy and some of the others fairly regularly. My daughter can't read yet, but she rememebers the story and can fill in the blanks and even tell much of the story herself just by looking at the pictures. It makes me laugh when I hear her in bed, "reading" to herself and acting out the voices.

I have a lot of Froggy books. I love reading them. They are all very funny. In this book Froggy¿s parents think he can go out to eat and be behaved, until the food takes a long time to come. Then he starts to hop around the restaurant saying,¿ Be quiet, be neat.' You will have to buy it to see what happens in the end. This is a great book to read anytime and anywhere.
