PreS-Gr 2—Charming and sweet Julieta Ranita lives with her fellow frogs on a pond near a flower garden. Romeo the toad likes her, but her sisters and cousins constantly bully him. He often visits the pond to be with Julieta, but he is shy and hardly speaks to her. One day Julieta's sisters call him ugly and fat, and Romeo runs off to his own garden and cries out of sadness. Later he hears the suitors singing to court the frogs and he decides to sing to Julieta as well. The suitors are jealous and push him into the muddy water. Angry and embarrassed, he makes a garden hose look like a snake and scares them away while seemingly beheading a snake and saving the animals of the pond. Julieta Ranita falls instantly in love. This heartwarming story, originally from France, is written in sophisticated language that will help to enrich readers' vocabulary. The art clearly convey the characters' emotions playing a powerful role as a complement to the text. Beginning readers will enjoy the rhyming element that the author adds to names, such as Mariano Gusano and Julieta Ranita.—Patricia Bashir, Frisco Public Library, Frisco, TX
