Synopsis

Superfrog! by Michael Foreman

Little Frank lives in Pond City, where life among the lilies couldn't be better ...during the day, that is. At night time the pond folk quiver in their slippery skins as slimy bug-eyed monsters emerge from the watery underworld. One night, their dastardly deeds go too far, and Little Frank decides enough is enough. Can he stop the creepy crooks once and for all?

Reviews

This is very much picture book noir by one of Britain's top illustrator's but the brilliant fairy tale twist at the end keeps the mood light. ABC Excellent ... an enjoyable addition to any KS1 library. The School Librarian There is quirky detail for the reader to discover, and plenty of action to keep them turning the pages. A lovely romp of a book with subtle humour. Armadillo Magazine There are delightful visual and verbal plays on the superhero and crime noir genres here, but none that are above the heads of young readers...beautifully paced and great fun for all. Books For Keeps The vibrant visuals match the text to keep the fun going and the reader engrossed. Children's Books Ireland
