A pet!
Mom has agreed:  Froggy can have a pet.  Off to the pet store they go.  Mom would prefer a bunny or some mice, but Froggy and his little sister, Pollywogilina, have their hearts set on a doggy.  And when Froggy sees the little dog with big brown eyes, he begs to take her home.

Mom cautions Froggy about all the new responsibilities he will have taking care of Doggy, but Froggy’s sure there will be no problem.  He doesn’t count on Doggy being more difficult to train than he expected.

Froggy always lands himself in a pickle, but he always bounces back.  That’s why everyone loves him!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz's Froggy books:"A good choice for reading aloud.... Any youngster who has ever bundled up for wintertime will surely laugh out loud over this addled amphibian's constant dressing and undressing."—Publishers Weekly on Froggy Gets Dressed “Perfect to comfort any kid a little hesitant at the first swimming lesson. Giggles come with the lesson.”—The Orlando Sentinel on Froggy Learns To Swim“The accessible text, with its sound effects and overall sense of fun, is a pleasure to read aloud. Even nonreaders can enjoy the story through the cartoonlike illustrations. Another winning entry in the Froggy series.”—Booklist on Froggy Goes To Bed

"Froggy's natural exuberance and excitement are infectious…”—School Library Journal

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—In this long running series, Froggy has played soccer and T-ball, learned to swim, gone on a play date, baked a cake, and vacationed in Hawaii, among other things. Now he gets a dog. As the family searches for the best pet, he is determined to bring home a puppy even though his mother tells him how much work it will be. Though the pup isn't all Froggy expected-in one scene he fetches mom's underwear instead of a stick-Froggy bonds with the pet after cuddling in bed and waking up to wet puppy kisses. Froggy is a bit dismayed when the day begins again with a trip outside with the dreaded pooper scooper. London writes with a focus on creating a lively read-aloud experience, while offering an important lesson about responsibility. The saturated cartoon images of this iconic series show lots of movement. Froggy fans will enjoy this latest installment.—Jennifer Miskec, Longwood University, Farmville, VA
Kirkus Reviews
Froggy returns for another minor adventure in his well-documented life with this 23rd outing. This time, Froggy wants to get a dog. His mother reluctantly agrees to the idea of a pet, though she thinks a dog would be too messy. After breakfast, Froggy, his mother and baby sister Pollywogilina set off together for the animal shelter, where they examine different kinds of pets. His mother suggests a bunny, white mice or even a baby alligator. But Froggy craves a canine companion, and he falls in love with a gray dog with "sweet chocolate brown eyes" that even his mother finds irresistible. They take the dog home, and as Froggy learns how to care for Doggy, he discovers that supervising a bouncy dog is not as easy as he first thought. The text is not particularly funny, offering a couple of stale setups with a pooper-scooper, as well as an episode in which Doggy drags out Mom's pink underpants in front of Froggy's friend Frogilina. Cheery illustrations in watercolor and pencil do their best to add to the humor with amusing expressions on the characters' faces and jaunty poses that capture Froggy's confident personality. Die-hard Froggy fans may enjoy his latest small adventure, but this doesn't offer anything new in the crowded let's-get-a-dog pack. (Picture book. 3-7)
