About the Author
Arnold Lobel (1933-1987) was the award-winning author and illustrator of many beloved children's books, including the classic I Can Read books about Frog and Toad, and the Caldecott Medal winning Fables.
Adrianne Lobel grew up to be a noted set designer who also produced the Broadway musical A Year with Frog and Toad. Adrianne's discovery of several of her father's handmade books illustrated in pen and ink for family and friends led to this new picture book. An artist herself, Adrianne added color to prints of her father's line art using watercolors and dyes. Adrianne lives with her daughter in New York City.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Pre-order the official script book today. Kindle | Hardcover

A Toad Was Feeling . . .
A toad was feeling
Sad and grumpy
Because his skin
was rough and lumpy.
"My skin is bad,"
Said he. "I'll hide it.'
He bought a coat
and jumped inside it.
"And now," he said,
"I do not worry . . .
Outside I'm nicely
Soft and furry."
I love these little miniature portraits of frogs and toads and think they would nicely compliment the original Frog and Toad books. In the front of the book Adriane Lobel discusses how these little "stories" were lost and rediscovered. She also briefly discusses her father, Arnold Lobel, and how she had to "shake [herself] of fear and to produce watercolors with the same freedom and effortlessness that approached" that her father used to create. I think she did a marvelous job and this book is worth adding to your timeless collection of Lobel books!
A nice hardbound book.
The little poems contained in this book are simply charming. They're clever. Funny. Sweet. They are everything you'd expect from Arnold Lobel. My almost 4-year old would pause to think after each one, then laugh and laugh once she "got" the humor.
In the book's introduction, Adrianne Lobel says these poems are the "first time [Arnold Lobel] wrote about frogs and toads." They are a foretaste of the stories to come; you can feel the same light, friendly spirit found in the beginning readers. Adrianne added her own talents in watercolor to her father's line illustrations, resulting in a beautiful "new" Arnold Lobel book for little ones (and parents!) to enjoy.
"Bright Green Frog" is my personal favorite. I ended up sharing it with my clarinet-playing colleagues!
