The Lovereading4Kids comment
All fans of rhymes will love the witty and simple words in Oi Dog!. The rule says Dogs sit on Frogs but Frog is determined to challenge that. According to Frog, Dogs sit on Logs, Cats sit on Gnats, Mice sit on Ice, Bears sit on Stairs and Whales sit on Nails whether they like it or not! Jim Field’s illustrations chart the new seating arrangements brilliantly.~ Julia Eccleshare
Oi Dog! by Kes Gray, Claire Gray
The hilarious sequel to the bestselling Oi Frog! will have children rolling around with laughter.
Frog's had enough, he's the changing the status quo! Cat insists that there are rules - only mules sit on stools, no one but hares should sit on chairs and however irritating, dogs MUST sit on frogs. 'Well, I'm changing the rules,' said the frog. 'From now on, dogs sit on logs, not frogs!' And everyone else is going to have to sit somewhere else too.
Will Cat want to sit on gnats instead of cushy mats? Will spiders like sitting on gliders? Will whales be happy to sit on nails? And, most importantly, where is FROG going to sit?
Kes is one of the Independent's TOP TEN children's authors and winner of the Red House Children's Book Award. Jim's first picture book Cats Ahoy! won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2011.
It's not often I laugh out loud when reading picture books. This was one of those rare occasions...Great stuff -- Ann Giles Book Witch
A gem of a book which gets funnier and funnier as you read through the outrageous suggestions. Parents In Touch
I think perhaps the Gray/Field team have, between them, managed to out-dog Oi Frog with Oi Dog! It's absolutely un-missable Red Reading Hub
I simply implore you to buy it so you can enjoy it for yourself! I simply want to say that this was my most anticipated book of the year and it hasn't disappointed. It has exceeded all expectations...And I think it is my 'Book of the Year'! Book Bairn
