Reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this book... simple but deftly told. Bookbag Great story with a happy ending. EYE A joy to read. Carousel Frog is an inspired creation - a masterpiece of graphic simplicity. Guardian This is one of a series of books about Frog; look out also for Frog Finds a Friend, with the same trademark exploration of the emotional highs and lows with which all small children are familiar. -- Yvonne Coppard Armadillo Magazine
