Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

It’s pretty darn difficult to find a more charming book than 999 Tadpoles (2011). Kimura kindly updates us on the oversize family’s status, beginning with the little frogs poking their heads out of the dirt to awaken on a lovely morning. Mother Frog’s head count, though, only reaches 998. Who is missing? Ah, it’s their big brother, who is not only literally big but also leads the charge to rouse other slumbering animals from beneath rocks and leaves so that they too might enjoy the blossoming spring. A turtle, a lizard, some ladybugs—all are thankful for the wake-up call. And then there’s the hole. Better wake up whoever is in there too, eh? Bad idea: a snake, rather like the one in 999 Tadpoles, awaits to give the family more grief. Murakami’s big-eyed, kelly-green amphibians, set against large white backdrops, are just as cute now as they were as newborns, and their heedless groupthink as they race around being gee-whiz about everything remains downright ­adorable. Preschool-Grade 2. --Daniel Kraus

Review

""To speak of an insanely gorgeous book about frogs would seem to pose a contradiction in terms...yet here they [it] is: the strong point of this book is its eye-popping design. Once again, a teeming multitude of primitive yet curiously expressive frogs are scattered on a stark white background to very pleasing effect.""- New York Times Book Review
(Pamela Paul New York Times Book Review)

 "Murakami’s impish, toy-bright illustrations look — almost — as if a talented 4-year-old might have painted them. In contrast to Hello Kitty-style Japanese Neo-Pop, they have a distinctly, even stubbornly, handmade feel. Besides setting the stage for outlandish fun, the message they convey is unmistakable: Nothing in these pages is not for children. The result is an uncommon picture book designed not only to entertain young people but also to give them their due." The New York Times Book Review

The books arrived in A-1 condition and on time. My grandchildren loved them! I had intended to wait until Spring and give them to them at Easter, but couldn't wait. It's a favorite at the library where I work.

Given To Me For An Honest Review

999 Frogs Wake Up by Ken Kimura is a book for every child's bookshelf. It is about the frogs that plan to wake everyone up for spring. A hungry snake wakes up but the frogs assure him that he can sleep as long as he wants. Your child(ren) will laugh and enjoy this book. They will love the humor that it has. The illustrations and bright and clear. If you wish for a great book that your child will love or you classroom will enjoy this is the book. I gave it 5 stars but it should have more. I highly recommend it to everyone and anyone with a child or works with children.

What a great spring story! 998 frogs (plus their big brother) decide wake everybody up for spring. When they accidentally wake up a hungry snake they assure him that he can sleep a little later if he likes. Kids will enjoy the wry sense of humor. Cute, "kawai" illustrations with lots of white space retain a very Japanese feel from this import. This is a sequel to 999 Tadpoles.
