I saw on LibraryThing that there are quite a few "Froggy" books written by London. Last summer, we checked out a book about Froggy learning to swim. I tend to be leery of repeating characters in picture books (Olivia notwithstanding) because the stories tend to be uninspired more often than not, and this book did not buck the trend.Froggy decides to enter a marching band contest that advertises a big prize, so he gathers together his friends into a ragtag marching band. The outcome is not terribly important, but the messages are conflicting. I'm a bit troubled by the emphasis on competition - that Froggy decides to learn the saxophone not for its own sake but to win a contest. On a positive note, Froggy shows determination in practicing day and night and in not allowing an accident during the parade to derail him. I just wish the ol' boy could be more internally motivated.

Froggy wants to win the band prize, so he gets out his dad's old saxaphone and assembles a band of his friends. They practice every day, and, despite messing up win "coolest band."

Embarrasment and friendship are the key points in this book. Great illustrations I would use this in the fifth grade classroom

This is a great music or band book. I used it to help my class see all the instruments needed to make the songs we hear. We also got to practice marching with our instruments like froggy and his friends do.
