Editorial Reviews

Patricia Riley
When a young frog sets out to find "somewhere else," a dragonfly, who can see the dangers in the garden, urges him to "one, two, three...jump!" out of harm's way several times. Finally, the frog lands in a pond, just the place for him. Simple illustrations in bright, flat colors expand on the frog's close calls in this playful tale of finding one's place.
The Horn Book Guide

Have you ever thought it might be fun to be somewhere else, to see other things, or experience life in a new place? When a young frog meets up with a dragonfly, they set out to explore new lands hoping to find the perfect spot to live. Luckily the dragonfly has eyes that can see front, back, and sideways. She is always on the lookout for any trouble that may come their way. Curiosity soon becomes a problem for this duo, as trouble seems to be waiting around every corner. The kindly dragonfly gets them out of some tight spots by helping the frog to "one, two, three...jump!" After a few dicey situations they find the most wonderful place they could have ever imagined and it wasn't far from home. 1998, Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, Ages 2 to 6, $16.00. Reviewer: Sharon Tolle—Children's Literature
School Library Journal
PreS-This attractive picture book just misses the mark. The simple story line follows an adventurous frog as he jumps from place to place at the urging of a cautious dragonfly. Repetition of the title phrase; variations in type size, spacing, and placement; and bright, flat illustrations are all designed to appeal to young listeners. Unfortunately, the text also seems flat in places. Characterization, although understandably brisk, is somewhat disappointing. The frog seems petulant in his refusal to follow the dragonfly's (uniformly good) advice. Meanwhile, the dragonfly sounds bossy and unreasonable because he doesn't explain the dangers he's helping the frog to avoid. Still, Ormerod's illustrations have child appeal. Stylized flowers bloom, the bright orange cat has four straight stripes above its paws, and the dragonfly features a rainbow mix of colors. On occasion, this simplicity makes some items hard to identify. For example, the "two stones" between which the frog lives look more like two perfectly round balls of dirt. Robert Kalan's Jump, Frog, Jump! (Greenwillow, 1995) and Ellen Stoll Walsh's Hop Jump (Harcourt, 1993) are more engaging alternatives.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Penelope Lively
Penelope Lively
Beloved memoirist (A House Unlocked), children's book author (The Ghost of Thomas Kempe), and Booker Prize winner Penelope Lively is perhaps best known for smart, literate thrillers that look to the past for keys to understanding, like 2003's The Photograph. "I'm not an historian," Lively told Britain's The Observer, "but I can get interested -- obsessively interested -- with any aspect of the past."

Good To Know

In her interview with Barnes & Noble.com, Lively shared some fun facts about herself:

"I came late to writing -- I was in my late 30s before I wrote anything. The years before that had been busy with small children, and I seem to have fallen into writing almost by accident. Since then, I have never stopped -- books for children to begin with, then a period writing for both adults and children -- short stories also -- then for adults only when the children's books, sadly, left me."

"It has been a busy 30 years, but because writing is a solitary activity and I like the company of others, I have also always had other involvements -- with writers' organizations such as Britain's Society of Authors, with PEN, with the Royal Society of Literature, and, for six years, as a member of the Board of the British Library (the opposite number of the Library of Congress) which I regarded as a great privilege -- what could be more important than the national archive?"

"I have always been an avid user of libraries; like any writer, much of my inspiration comes from life as it is lived -- what you see and hear and experience, but my novels have sprung from some abiding interest -- the operation of memory, the effects of choice and contingency, the conflicting nature of evidence -- and these concerns are fueled by reading: serendipitous and eclectic reading."

"I am first and foremost a reader myself. I don't think I could write if I wasn't constantly reading. I both wind and unwind by reading -- stimulus and relaxation both. I used to love tramping the landscape, and gardening, but arthritis rules out both of those, so I do both vicariously through books. I live in the city now, but feel out of place -- I have always before lived most of the time in the country: I miss wide skies, weather, seasons."

"Never mind, there are compensations, and London is a very different place from the pinched and bomb-shattered place to which I came as a schoolgirl in 1945 -- now it is multicultural, polyglot, vibrant, unpredictable, in a state of constant change but with that bedrock of permanence that an old place always has. I like to escape from time to time -- mainly to West Somerset, where we have a family cottage and I can admire my daughter's garden -- she has the gardening gene in a big way and is far more skilled than I ever was -- bird-watch, walk a bit, talk to people I've known for decades, and see the night sky crackling with the stars that the city blots out."
