Editorial Reviews

This sweetly silly picture book is a treasure from the past. Caldecott Medalist Arnold Lobel died in 1987, but he left behind a manuscript of rollicking, rhyming stories about frogs and toads. Lobel's daughter Adrianne has lovingly edited this entertaining collection, presenting it as a uplifting posthumous gift from her beloved father.

Meet the Author

Arnold Lobel (1933-1987) was the award-winning author and illustrator of many beloved children's books, including the classic I Can Read books about Frog and Toad, and the Caldecott Medal winning Fables.


Adrianne Lobel grew up to be a noted set designer who also produced the Broadway musical A Year with Frog and Toad. Adrianne's discovery of several of her father's handmade books illustrated in pen and ink for family and friends led to this new picture book. An artist herself, Adrianne added color to prints of her father's line art using watercolors and dyes. Adrianne lives with her daughter in New York City.

Our family is familiar with the early-reader format of Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad stories, which we love. So this collection of rhymes caught my eye during our most recent library visit. The little poems contained in this book are simply charming. They're clever. Funny. Sweet. They are everything you'd expect from Arnold Lobel. My almost 4-year old would pause to think after each one, then laugh and laugh once she "got" the humor. In the book's introduction, Adrianne Lobel says these poems are the "first time [Arnold Lobel] wrote about frogs and toads." They are a foretaste of the stories to come; you can feel the same light, friendly spirit found in the beginning readers. Adrianne added her own talents in watercolor to her father's line illustrations, resulting in a beautiful "new" Arnold Lobel book for little ones (and parents!) to enjoy. "Bright Green Frog" is my personal favorite. I ended up sharing it with my clarinet-playing colleagues!
