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.

Editorial Reviews

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)
