KIRKUS REVIEW

The boy's family goes out to dinner at a ""Fancy Restaurant"" thus giving the ubiquitous stowaway frog a chance to run riot in unusually elegant surroundings. He wastes no time--jumping down an orchestra member's saxophone, popping out from under a lady's salad, and giving one startled diner a great big kiss. Even when dressed for a night on the town, Mayer's people have the same baggy attire and top-heavy, jowled visages that make their double takes so arresting; on our part, we could follow frog's by now predictable antics with our eyes closed.
