True to the small child's viewpoint of a world full of powerful grownups, the latest uproarious picture book about Joe the frog perfectly captures Joe's frustration as he tries to get attention and join the adults' activities at a family reunion. . . . Illustrated with bright, boisterous line-and-watercolor pictures, the simple rhyming text . . . will draw story-hour listeners as well as beginning readers to a scenario they may recognize.
Beginning readers will enjoy the rollicking rhyme and equally active art. They will also identify with Joe's need for attention and the endless refusals he receives. . . . A book with a lot of child appeal.
