Publishers Weekly
Favorite characters and series boast new additions. Adding another adventure to the list of perennial favorites, Froggy's Sleepover by Jonathan London, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz, chronicles the frolicking fellow's first overnight away from home at Max's, and the two friends spend so much time schlepping between the houses for various comforts that they do not get much sleep.

Children's Literature
It's Friday, school's out for the weekend, and Froggy thinks it is time for fun. Froggy is going to Max's house for his first sleep over. Sleepover is London's and Remkiewicz's latest Froggy adventure book in the successful and delightful "Froggy Series." Children will love listening to and reading along with the fun-sounding text. Words such as "flop, flop, flops,' "slam, sloop schlop," and other fun sounds are written to hear and mimic throughout the story. The beautiful colorful illustrations vividly depict the noisy event filled sleep over so the readers can even read it from memory. Max's and Froggy's "back and forths" create scenarios familiar to youngsters and their active imaginations. 2005, Viking Penguin Publishing Group, Ages 2 up.

Kirkus Reviews
London's ever-endearing Froggy attempts to swing his first sleepover at his friend Max's house. Luckily, the two homes are just across the wetlands from one another. Like the other Froggy books, readers will likely have a sense of what's coming around the corner-qualms are besetting Froggy by the time the first ghost story is finished-but as he likes to do, London will take them a few corners further. Rather than beat a simple retreat, Froggy and Max start a shuttle service between their homes, each deciding in turn that a little something is necessary, some pink lemonade at 1 A.M. for instance. Well-honed illustrations from Remkiewicz depicting the dark of the night and the mild cavortings of Froggy and Max will give readers a taste of both nighttime's spookiness and the beautiful sanctuary of home. (Picture book. 3-5)

Froggy's Sleepover 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This time Froggy isn't the only one who pulls an "ooops!" He has help. In true form, what seems so simple becomes a chore. The sometimes red-faced frog is ready for sleeping over with his friend hours before bedtime. Then a few minor adjustments must be made for the sleepover to be just right. Accidents (Froggy is certainly no stranger to these) happen, needs must be fulfilled and food (with flies) is involved. This is one story that reflects what kids everywhere face when trying to sleep over with their friends. Parents get involved and very little sleep takes place. It is a fun read (and reread). Bring your pillow and enjoy.
