KIRKUS REVIEW

London’s ever-endearing Froggy attempts to swing his first sleepover at his friend Max’s house. Luckily, the two homes are just across the wetlands from one another. Like the other Froggy books, readers will likely have a sense of what’s coming around the corner—qualms are besetting Froggy by the time the first ghost story is finished—but as he likes to do, London will take them a few corners further. Rather than beat a simple retreat, Froggy and Max start a shuttle service between their homes, each deciding in turn that a little something is necessary, some pink lemonade at 1 A.M. for instance. Well-honed illustrations from Remkiewicz depicting the dark of the night and the mild cavortings of Froggy and Max will give readers a taste of both nighttime’s spookiness and the beautiful sanctuary of home. (Picture book. 3-5)
