KIRKUS REVIEW

The frog band's encore brings the group to the aid of a mystified Durrington Dormouse, who is first seen fleeing from a Navy Press Gang that invades the Grasshopper Inn. But it seems that the hot drink offered by his hideout hostess Mad Maud Toad has brought Durrington more than a good night's sleep; 100 years have passed when he awakens to the frog band's booming sound, and Squire Fox is just about to evict a new generation of doormice from the family home when Durrington shows up with the documents that prove his ownership. As in last year's The Frog Band and the Onion Seller, it's all hyped up with mad chases through arched cellars and green country, and filled in with swarming creatures in period disarray.
