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

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.

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.

The best review I can give is that my son -who is not a big reader -read this straight through and loved it and is anxiously awaiting more from this author. I appreciate the illustrations and imaginative story. What more can you ask for in a children's book?

My 5th grader read this for his book report project. He loved the story and was enthusiastic to give his presentation. The vocabulary seemed appropriate for maybe a 4th grader to read on their own. It does have the same formula as many other books for this audience. A common wood frog (not Kulipari fighting frog w/ poison) wants to become a warrior frog, like his father. But he was born without the capacity to make poison. He has a friend/side kick that helps him train, a wise old turtle who advises him, and the nemesis. All key characters in the book help shape this common frog to help him achieve what he wants to be. There’s enough adventure and action to keep the readers engaged. The illustrations are done quite well.
