Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway
Delightfully playful, innocently mischievous, and wonderfully ageless, Froggy once again brings his unique approach to an everyday dilemma. This time he wants to find a playmate for Saturday, something which should be very easy to do. However, he soon becomes disappointed when one prospect after another declines his generous and enthusiastic offer. Mom intervenes much to Froggy's amazement and consternation. He boldly refuses to go on a playdate with Frogilina to the movies. In fact, he becomes a loud nuisance in the house with the author's classic rendition of "Frrooggyy!" repeated throughout this boisterous tale. Of course, Froggy indeed has a playdate with his new friend, but with his Dad as their escort. A few movie theater antics such as throwing popcorn cause a mild, temporary raucous. At one point Frogilina plants a big smooch on her highly embarrassed friend who proclaims, "Eeewwwwww!" Having delicious ice cream cones on the way home attempt to save the day, but with a drip, drip, drip right on Froggy's lap. Clearly a candidate for reading aloud many times over, Froggy stories ring true to life for all types of readers with hilarious fun on every page, perfect for all ages. Reviewer: Susan Treadway
Kirkus Reviews
Fans expect a flop flop flop in every Froggy adventure, but in this latest work, Froggy's emotions flip-flop more than his webbed feet ever do. Froggy wakes up, excited to start the weekend by going outside to play. But none of his friends are home. Luckily, his mom has a solution: She has set up a play date with Frogilina. Froggy's reaction? "I'M NOT GOING!" Froggy slams the door--"BLAM!"--wails on his saxophone ("SQUAAAAAAWK") and throws a ball against the wall ("thump thump thump") to release some anger. But then he realizes that he does want to see the movie, even if Frogilina has to come along. He snaps on his favorite bowtie, slaps on some of Dad's aftershave (Froggy's true feelings come out) and heads to the theater. Froggy, of course, can't sit still for an entire movie, and somehow Frogilina manages yet again to give him a great big smooch on the cheek. EEEWWW. London deals with a classic young-child dilemma--wrestling with the embarrassment of having a crush--with sympathetic humor. A post-movie visit to an ice-cream stand feels more tacked on to provide additional sound-effect opportunities than derived organically from the story, alas. Not the most smoothly transitioned of Froggy fare, but endearing nevertheless. (Picture book. 3-5)
