From Publishers Weekly
Max and Felix, the two funny frogs featured in this chapter book, record their mishaps and misadventures with the click of a camera. Whether the frogs are building a new porch, telling spooky stories or going fishing, Felix captures the unwittingly comic moments, and the inclusion of his very candid black-and-white "photographs" subtly enriches the story. Gray's bright, cartoonish illustrations irresistibly accentuate Max and Felix's long, skinny limbs, their paunchy bellies and loud, tacky outfits. Unfortunately, there is little differentiation between Max and Felix; their lack of distinguishing personalities, styles or speech patterns seems like a missed opportunity in an otherwise mirthful work. Ages 2-6.

From Kirkus Reviews
In the best easy-reader tradition, Max and Felix are friends who engage in mildly witty dialogue while negotiating the unexpected results of their various efforts. These particular two are frogs, dressed in amusingly bizarre costumes that look as though they came out of Granddad's vacation trunk some years ago (plaid pants, flowered shirts, etc.) and expressively posed- -especially Max, who's hoping to be the subject of a dramatic photo taken by Felix with the camera Max has just given him. But Felix never seems to catch Max in his showoffish poses; instead, he snaps the pratfalls that follow, which the rickety porch Max builds suggests is more characteristic anyway. As a theme, photos misfiring wears a little thin by the fourth brief chapter; still, the perky, natural-sounding dialogue and funny, lively illustrations are sure to appeal to young readers.

These free-spirit frog friends are adorable and will charm children wanting a grand romp through make believe. The illustrations are comical, colorful and interesting. I'd love to frame some of the illustrations, they are that good.
