Editorial Reviews

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. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
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)

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.

    Froggy does it again in this true sleeper (over).

    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.
