Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This bull (frog) has lost his hop but readers will be surprised where he looks for it. Compound words are broken when the page turns. So, grass becomes grasshopper and lady becomes ladybird. The illustrations are cleverly done, too. The whiskers of a cat are seen on one page and on the next the whiskers appear on a catfish. What appears to be a close up of a stage curtain is actually the curtains of a stagecoach when you turn the page. The lively illustrations have a wonderful texture and a sophisticated use of color. The uncluttered design really helps the visual jokes. The text is hand-drawn in a gentle wave across the bottom of each page, very appropriate for a bullfrog in search of his hop.

Meet the Author

Rick Walton became a children's writer because, after trying almost every other career in the book, he finally realized that writing for kids was one of the few things that he both enjoyed and was good at. Since that realization he has had over forty books published, with many more scheduled for publication over the next couple of years. His works include picture books, riddle books, activity books, a collection of poetry, and educational and game software. His books have been featured on the IRA Children's Choice list, on Reading rainbow, and on CBS This Morning.

Rick lives in Provo, Utah, with his wife, Ann, the brains of the household, who also writes for kids, programs computers, masters Rick's website, and does all the home repair that Rick never learned how to do. It was Ann, who grew up in a computer family and who has eight siblings and a father in the computer industry, who dragged Rick kicking and screaming into the computer age. Now Rick doesn't understand how anyone can survive without word-processing programs, e-mail, and their own website.

They have four children, all of whom are learning to love reading, writing, and computers.
