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.
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.
As much as I do not really appreciate Froggy's attitude, our kids love him and often bring the books home from the library. Today, they have read this book several times. Can you guess the phrase they picked up on and have repeated many, many, many times? "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table."
It is ps to us to train our children and Froggy is a good example of how NOT to behave. In this 'episode' he spills his water, plays with the salt pot, and bangs his spoon on the table! Hands up, for parents who have kids that have done this! Alas it doesn't stop there, the spoon hits the waiter and then Froggy starts flopping around the restaurant singing! Finally his dinner of spaghetti and flies is served. SSLLLUUUURRRRPPPP! That is when he sees Frogilina! Uh oh! The ending, although extremely embarrassing is actually quite amusing and Froggy's parents never lose their calm.
Another library find. Thanks, Liz
