Overview

Froggy is going to the doctor for a checkup, and he's feeling a little nervous. ?What if the doctor wants to give me a shot?? he thinks. He worries as he dresses and then he can't sit still in the waiting room. Finally, it's time to go in and change for his exam, but . . . OOOPS! He's forgotten his underwear! And that's just the beginning of Froggy's hilarious doctor visit that ends reassuringly with a gold star and a lollipop.


Froggy isn't looking forward to his check-up because he might get a shot but when it's over and he's pronounced a very healthy frog, Dr. Mugwort is the one who dreads Froggy's next visit.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ten years and 10 titles later (including Froggy Learns to Swim) a favorite amphibian is still kicking in Froggy Goes to the Doctor by Jonathan London, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz. Froggy's nervousness subsides and the check-up turns cheeky when he engages in his trademark antics. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A lightweight addition to the often charming Froggy canon. Froggy has to go for his annual check-up at the doctor's office. At first he's happy about this, for it means a day off from school. Then he remembers that it might also mean a shot and his enthusiasm quickly dampens. It's not long, however, before the rambunctious frog is giving the doctor the Froggy business: making the doctor's hair curl with his dead-fly breath ("I guess I forgot to brush," he admits), yelling into the stethoscope, accidentally delivering a blow to the doctor's chops when his reflexes are tested. The doctor does turn the tables when she brandishes the hypodermic, but she's only kidding and Froggy escapes without puncture. It is all very airy-though energized by Remkiewicz's bustling watercolors-and fairly aimless as well. There is very little meat for kids to chew on in this story, little even by way of entertainment. Froggy is typically good at offering a little direction to young readers-about sportsmanship, for instance, or how not to eat in restaurants-but no such is tendered here, be it positive or negative example, except for a slight introduction to the event.

Meet the Author

"My ideas for stories come from experience I've had, or from dreams or leap right out of my head - from my ever-active imagination," explains Jonathan London, who burst on the children's book scene in 1992 with the publication of three picture books. Since then he has published more than 20 picture books, including the popular Froggy series and the young adult novel, Where's Home?



"There are worlds of possibility within our own imaginations from which we can create stories that can make someone want to cry or laugh, play a saxophone or make a snowman. This act of writing, for me, is a part of my celebration of life, a way to give back a little for all that I have been given. Kind of thanks."



Jonathan London started writing poetry in his late teens. Although he received a Masters Degree in Social Sciences and never formally studied literature or creative writing, he began to consider himself a "writer" about the time he graduated from college. After college he became a dancer in a modern dance company and worked at numerous low-paying jobs as a laborer or counselor.



However, during this twenty-year period, London continued to write. He wrote poems and short stories for adults, earning next to nothing despite being published in many literary magazines. "It wasn't until I had kids of my own that I became a writer for children," he explains. "It all started with telling them stories when they were very young. I wrote down one of these stories, and it became The Owl Who Became the Moon, my first picture book sale (though it was my fourth to appear in print). Now I am finally making a living as a writer. A dream come true!"



Born a "Navy brat" in Brooklyn, New York, Jonathan was raised on Naval stations throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Today he lives with his wife, Maureen, and their two sons, Aaron and Sean, in rural Northern California where they like to backpack in the summer, play in the snow in winter-and dance all year around.

    Silly. Kids love Froggy books. As a mom, I don't so much.

    From a kid standpoint, this book is great. From mine, not so much. I always wonder why they have froggy putting underwear on in all the books. I guess that is part of life, but still...

    I also haven't ever encountered a doctor like the one in this book. Froggy's mom is quite resourceful when he forgets to put on underwear. Kids can relate to Frogilina as she scoots closer to Froggy and he says yuck.

    There is a lot of yelling in these books. They just don't "flow" for me.
