### Editorial Reviews

##### School Library Journal
Gr 1-3This series entry flops as a standalone title. Matty and Moe are two frogs who decide to have a contest to see who can reach various spots with the fewest number of hops. Readers are encouraged to count, add, and subtract along with them. There is no background given for these skills; readers are expected to be able to understand the transition between counting hops, figuring out which number is greater than or less than the other, and translating these figures into a number problem. Although there is a page of information at the back to help parents introduce the concepts, it is not enough. The story frame is weak and will not hold readers' interest long enough for them to care about which frog wins, and the colorful cartoon illustrations can't save this no-hopper.JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
