Beware of the Frog by William Bee


Beware of the Frog by William Bee

This is a fantastic froggy fairy tale from the creator of And the Train Goes...and Whatever . Mrs Collywobbles has nothing to fear from the strange and fearsome visitors that emerge from the big, dark, scary wood - not with her pet frog guarding the garden gate. Gobble! They don't hang around for long! But when Mrs Collywobbles' frog demands a thank-you kiss, things suddenly take a surprising turn...


* The illustrations have a quirky, nostalgic feel, while repetition and onomatopoeic language grows to a cacophony of sound... A great read-aloud book. Junior on And the Train Goes... (9781406301670) * A delightful cautionary tale. The Sunday Telegraph on Whatever (9781406301335)
