‘Oi Frog’ by Kes Gray and Jim Field

Oi Frog!starstarstarstarWho doesn’t love a charmingly silly story with inventive illustrations!?! This children’s picture book has it all…humour, rhyming, creativity, and all together it’s just plain fun. It might even lead to a game to play on your next road trip!

Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools, gophers sit on…well, you get the idea! But that frog, oi that frog, is being a pain because he just will not agree that he must sit on a log!

While researching this book, I came across this delightful poem review on Goodreads by Leila Skelton which recommends the book way better than anything I can say about it:

This book is like a rhyming treat
Accomplishing that special feat
Of mixing up who wrote, who drew,
Producing something fresh and new
That overall is very funny
(And very worthy of your money).

A frog would like a comfy spot
But is that easy? No, it’s not!
For every creature that we meet
Has got a special rhyming seat
And finding where we sit each one
Is really only half the fun!

My nieces love this. (knew they would)
IT REALLY IS SO VERY GOOD!
All bedtime faves have been forgotten
In favour of a froggie’s bottom!

I hope you take this tip from me:
BEST OF THE YEAR!
(So far, bought 3…)
