Amazon.com Review

On the occasion of Froggy's parents' anniversary, it's time for the family to head for Chez Yum, a hoity-toity restaurant with tablecloths and flower-filled vases. This means trouble. Froggy only has a few rules to remember--"Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table"--but it's absolutely not that simple. Froggy fidgets, shakes salt on his hand and licks it, bangs his spoon on the table, flips his spoon (bonk! oops!), pulls petals off flowers, sucks on sugar cubes (and ice cubes), and then, of course, simply must flop around singing. Just as he's getting down to actually eating, he spies his pretty classmate Frogilina, a guest star from Froggy's First Kiss. This doesn't help matters. As an embarrassed Froggy ducks under the tablecloth, spaghetti and fly sauce goes, well, flying. At that, the whole family gives up and heads to a local diner for burgers and flies. Youngsters will giggle out loud at the oh-so-familiar stunts (and trademark Froggy sound effects) of an irrepressible frog faced with the dreaded Fancy Dinner. This fine addition to the much-loved Froggy series could serve as a lighthearted way to approach table etiquette, but mostly it's just good messy fun. (Ages 3 to 6) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of Froggy will welcome Froggy Eats Out by Jonathan London, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz, featuring the hero in bow tie, suspenders and spats sized to fit his webbed feet. "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table," reminds Froggy's mom as he enters a fancy restaurant with his parents. This is not easy for Froggy, especially when he notices Frogilina at a nearby table. (Viking, $15.99 32p ages 2-7 ISBN 0-670-89686-1; May)

More About the Author

I was raised a Navy Brat and moved every two or three years when I was growing up. Now I live in one place and travel to lots of other places. I started writing poems in college, got a M.A. in History, performed in a modern dance company, traveled the world, got married, had two sons, and when I started telling my boys, Aaron and Sean, stories I realized that I could write for children. My first two books came out in the same week, in 1992, THIRTEEN MOONS ON TURTLE'S BACK and THE LION WHO HAD ASTHMA, soon followed by FROGGY GETS DRESSED. These books are still in print. FROGGY GETS DRESSED was the first of over twenty Froggy books. The most recent one is FROGGY GOES TO HAWAII. In October 2011 FROGGY BUILDS A TREE HOUSE will be published. The next one will be FROGGY GOES TO HAWAII. My Froggy books are silly and little kids like them. But I also write other kinds of books, including wildlife books. My first wildlife book was THE EYES OF GRAY WOLF. Most recent one is LITTLE SWAN. In October 2011 LITTLE PENGUIN: THE EMPEROR OF ANTARCTICA will come out. I've published around 100 books since 1992, but now I only write poems for myself. My sons and my wife, Maureen, are my constant inspirations. But I'm also inspired by young children, dogs, mountains, rivers, stars, trees, great cities, deserts, jungles, great food, dance, art, some sports, and the moon. And if anybody asks, Froggy c'est moi--but he's also Aaron and Sean, and every kid I've ever met. Flop flop flop!

I am getting my credential to be an elementary school teacher, and I would never read this book to my students.

Kids probably love them, and if I were still a youngin' I would like these books.

Format: Hardcover
A good story with nice illustrations, but the message it sends is not necessarily a good one to teach little kids when it comes to manners and listening to mom and dad.
Froggy goes to a fancy restaurant with his parents on their anniversary, and he is not on his best behavior! He fidgeted, shook the salt shaker, flipped silverware, and ran around the restaurant. When his spaghetti arrived, he began slurping it noisily. That's when he's seen by Frogilina, the pretty girl frog. Froggy is so discombobulated by seeing her that he accidentally pulls the tablecloth and upsets the spaghetti onto himelf, causing further embarrassment. Froggy's parents then basically say "Oh well," and take him to a burger joint instead.
To me, the book sends mixed messages. On the one hand, it seems the author is saying that it's okay to be a kid. But on the other hand, it seems that Froggy gets away with bad behavior, not only without any repercussions, but he even gets a reward!
For a funny story with a good message, I recommend Big Bad Bunny by Alan Durant and Guy Parker-Rees.

Froggy's going out to dinner tonight to help celebrate his parent's wedding anniversary. He's hoping for burgers and flies, but instead the family's eating at Chez Yum, a fancy sit down restaurant with tablecloths, candles and flowers on the table. Froggy has only three rules to remember...be neat, be quiet and no feet on the table. But even three rules are too many for this little pre-school frog. While waiting for dinner to arrive, he spills his water glass, fidgets and plays with the salt. Then he spends some time playing with the silverware, pulling petals off the flowers, blowing out the candles and sucking on sugar cubes and ice. Froggy finally can't take the wait any longer and gets off his chair, hopping and flopping and singing all over the restaurant. As dinner arrives, he sees a friend across the room, and while trying to hide under the table, pulls the entire meal onto the floor..... Nobody captures the essence of a busy pre-schooler, with places to go, people to see and things to do, as well as Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz. Their creative and descriptive text is full of energy and sound effects and complemented by wonderfully bright and expressive artwork. Children and adults alike will smile, giggle and laugh as they watch the sometimes all too familiar antics of this little frog and his family. Froggy Eats Out is a terrific new addition to this popular series and a picture book that shouldn't be missed.

Format: Paperback
Froggy's hungry and all he can think about is hamburgers and flies. But since it's his parents anniversary, he has to get dressed up and have dinner at some fancy resturant. At these places, you have to remember to keep quiet, be still and not put your feet on the table. A very hard thing to do for a young frog. Froggy tries his hardest, but things just don't go as planned. Find out all the trouble Froggy gets himself into. You'll want to leap frog your way to the store and get your own copy.

This story tells the tale of the considerable agony that children go through when eating at a fancy restaurant.
While it is true that Froggy misbehaved, it's not true that he wasn't punished. He unknowingly punished himself by enduring the humiliation of his actions in front of Frogilina.
This is a brightly colored and captivating book, my 2-year old loves it.

What can I say? I first found out about the Froggy books when I was substituting in the local elementary school Media Center. I saw how raptly the children listened and how they all ran up afterwards to try to check the book out for themselves. Since that time I have bought most of the series to read to my granddaughter, Emily, who loves them. She especially loves the part where one of the characters calls out "F-R-O-G-G-Y!!". Each time I finish reading one of these books, Emily immediately says "Again." That's enough for me!

This is a great book for my 3-tear old grandson. Some reviewers seem to think that all children's books must teach a lesson, which of course is not true. This book is not intended to teach kids table manners.
It teaches kids a more important lesson: that their family loves them even when they are not perfect. And it can teach adults to lighten up and don't take life so seriously! Enjoy your kids (or grandkids) while you can.

We inherited a bunch of "Froggy" books from a relative, and I have to say, they are being promptly donated! The messages they give are not happening around this house. In Froggy Eats Out, you basically get "Act up when your parents take you out and they'll just leave the fancy restaurant and take you to go get a hamburger, since that's what you really wanted anyway"?!?!? No way, if my kid acted like that, one of us would promptly take him outside to wait in the car, until the rest of us are finished.
This is just one example of the "Froggy" books.
