Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6-In this fast-paced tale, Pryce finds just the right balance between brutality and bravery, friendship and betrayal, and loss and discovery. Darel, a common wood frog, has a burning desire to emulate his late father, a mighty Kulipari warrior who died defending their homeland from invading scorpions. A new alliance between the scorpions and spiders threatens the Amphibilands. Darel and his friend Gee find themselves in the heart of the enemy camp: Gee a prisoner and Darel posing as a warrior volunteer. Darel's cunning and bravery make for a page-turner, and readers will be rooting for him as he, Gee, and their friend Coorah help lead the army of frogs to victory and secure the Amphibilands once more. Greene lends his talent with lush color illustrations that capture the tension and tenor of the text. Fans of Suzanne Collins's "Underland Chronicles" series (Scholastic) will be clamoring for this well-written first installation in a series. A must-have, winning adventure that is nearly impossible to put down.-Mary Beth Rassulo, Ridgefield Library, CTα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Set in the forests, coves, and deserts of the Australian hinterlands, this first novel by former NFL vet Pryce, writing with Naftali, pits cleverness against brute strength. Facing an invading alliance of scorpions, spiders, and lizards, a young wood frog survives—and saves his fellow frogs—through quickness, nerve, and major-league bluffing. The exciting story begins as Darel tries to prepare himself for a battle that the adult frogs don’t see coming. The son of a slain hero, a poisonous Kulipari warrior frog, Darel recruits his hefty best friend to train alongside him. Though the narrative focuses on frogs, it offers peeks at the evil doings of the scorpions and spiders as they plot to take over the Amphibilands. Pryce builds tension as the frogs figure out how to deploy their varied skills and reach the ancient turtle king who long ago placed a protective spell over their land. The violent but not overly graphic action is well matched by Greene’s dynamic and plentiful full-color illustrations. The provided map will help young readers track the spirited heroes. Grades 3-6. --Abby Nolan

Format: Hardcover
"An Army of Frogs" by Trevor Pryce,is a fascinating chapter book for children. I think children of all ages from very young ones to preteens would enjoy this book. In the realm of chapter books for young readers this book just might be King.

Even on the digital edition the formatting is wonderful. The pages are colorful, each has a fancy chapter heading and the illustrations are top-notch. I can vouch for the fact that even children who are too young to read the story on their own, or fully appreciate the text, enjoy looking at pictures, they are vibrantly colored and there are a lot of them.

As far as the story goes, there is a lot of action, excellent dialogue and enough humor to make you laugh out loud frequently. The characters are adorable and each one is unique. There have been a lot of books that feature frogs as a main character, but this is definitely one of the best in recent memory. The heroes are heroic and the villains are terrible! Just as an adventure story like this should have.

This book is long enough to keep a bit more of an advanced reader happily entertained, but also simple enough for a new reader to accomplish mostly on their own. If you have children, grandchildren, or know someone who does, this would make an incredible gift.

This review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher Amulet Books.

My 10 year old boy loved it. He read it on his own and then was eager to have it read as a family. The illustrations are captivating and the story is excellent and moves at a great pace. The tone of the book encourages hard work and caring for others. We are lookign ofrward to the next in this series.

I just finished reading this book to my 8 year old son. He LOVED it! We had to stay up past bed time to get to the end, because we couldn't put it down. This is the first chapter book that has interested him. We have tried Skylanders, A-Z Mysteries, Magic Treehouse and none have captivated him like this did. He came running downstairs as soon as he woke up the last few mornings so we could read before he had to get ready for school. He even put down his IPad(!!) tonight to read this book. He even read a couple of chapters to himself one evening, also a first for this type of book. The vocabulary was advanced so I really needed to read it to him, but I did not mind, as I enjoyed the story too.

He liked identifying the characters and places in the illustrations.

I thought the themes of finding inner strength, meeting challenging and scary situations head on and standing up for friends and family in need were well handled.

I highly recommend this book. We can't wait until next summer for the next installment to find out what happens to Darel and Gee.

My thanks to Trevor Pryce and company for a beautifully written and illustrated book.

My 8 year old son and I picked this up at a local store and it sounded like a great bedtime book to read together and he loved the illustrations. Unfortunately, we are only at chapter 12 in this 46 chapter book. At this point, my son is begging me to return this book and buy a different one (I don't even know if you can do that; I don't think I have ever returned a book). Last night he requested to pick out a different bedtime book from his bookcase instead of reading this book. Typically, I don't like to leave book reviews because books are as unique as the person reading them. Every person has their own individual opinion of a book. This isn't necessarily a bad book; it's just not a book for my 8 year old son at this point.

I think the issue for both of us is that he isn't really old enough understand the book's concepts and hidden definitions of words. He interrupts many, many times to ask the definition of a word that doesn't really exist or isn't in an 8 year old vocabulary. I find myself having to explain what a word means and what the author is trying to portray to the reader. For example, the author invented the word "pin-gñat-a." Clearly to me it is a play off the word piñata; however, because this is a book about frogs the author thought it would be witty to use the word gnat. Additional examples of words that needed explaining: flysicles, wattle flower (which is actually an Australian flower; I had to Google that for myself), inner eyelids, veil (which is a continuous concept in the book), tadpool, didgeridoo, pollywog, nightcasting, and dreamcasting. I should add that I don't mind that he interrupts me for definitions of words, but I find that it is excessive while reading this book.

I bought this book, because it was recommended to me by our local book store. It was a bit advanced for my 7 year old son to read on his own. That was fine, because I specifically bought it as a book for me to read to him at bedtime.
My son loved the illustrations, and we frequently flipped to the front look at the map to see where characters where, and what they looked liked. He did ask a lot of questions while I read it, but I just took that as a sign of his interest in the book. i.e. (what are inner eyelides, carapaces etc) I wasn't able to find much information about when the next book is coming out, but we are very much looking forward to reading #2. As an aside, it would be fun if there was a kulipari website we could visit. Also, I could see this being a great animated film!
