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)

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.

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.

Meet Froggy, the disrespectful, badly behaved, yet remarkably appealing frog! HOWEVER his parents are very much a couple and in this book they are celebrating their anniversary. Instead of leaving Froggy at home they take him with them to a posh restaurant. Although very lenient with Froggy, we see his mom and dad doing things as a family which is definitely a plus.

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

This is an excellent gift for kids of parents whom you don't like. 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 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 brat. At the end, after misbehaving, the little Froggy gets what he desired all along...burgers and flies, teaching kids that if they don't like something, they should misbehave until they get what they want.
