KIRKUS REVIEW

Young Froggie has such fantastic experiences at Grandpa’s birthday party that he doesn’t want it to end. Waking up in the morning with the adrenalin pumping, Froggie dashes out to where his populous family (first introduced in Too Many Frogs!, 2005) is already setting out food and decorations, and after whipping up a costume and an entire stage, belts out his favorite wordless song for Grandpa and other appreciative listeners. Graves fills the woodsy setting with blobby green frogs in purple party hats, adding an eager—and then mutinous—looking youngster in a bright yellow costume that resembles oversized pajamas. Eventually, Froggie crashes, surrendering to the temptation of a bedtime story from old Rabbit. Parents should find the whole scenario entirely familiar. (Picture book. 5-8)
