" Always be ready to defend yourself! " said.

" Nice pictures but dubious story (considering it's for young children) and verbose text. " said.

" Clever. Discussion provoking. What happens when we live the the land of what if? " said.

" Two frogs sit on a lily pad in the middle of a lake and one has prepared himself for the possible dangers they might face while a friend laughs at his concerns.Clever and very funny with a great twist. " said.

"A book with a real sense of humour which, I expect, can be read at very different levels depending on the age and humour of the reader. A simple story which tells of two frogs who argue over the need for a stick to protect themselves against an outlandish prediction.
For me, it is Wormell's bold, broad watercolour washes and detailed expressions on both the frogs that brings a grin to my face. His use of space and positioning on the long, wide double-page landscaped spreads gives the story a more epic feel and it is clear that he has thought carefully about the positioning of his characters but, more importantly, of the reader too.
" said.

"This is a fantastic story, and the watercolour illustrations are bold and very 'froggy'. Two frogs are sitting in the pond, one is armed with a stick to beat off an unlikely predator and the other thinks its a huge joke. One frog is almost eaten and both frogs are abducted and their lives saved by the stick. They become united in the task of finding more sticks, and inadvertently escape the fate from which the stick was originally intended to save them. I do have a few serious objections to reading this story aloud to small children though. Firstly a think the premise is a little complex. Secondly, I don't like to give children the idea that beating a dog with a stick is a good one. Finally, I think the kids will think the picture of the pike is a crocodile. Older children might enjoy it though, as it appears did other reviewers." said.

"Very good book, I think the moral/teaching aspect can be varied depending on how you interpret it. I liked the aspect the second frog learning not to make fun of people for their ideas because you never know when ideas may be useful.

I find the book very relatable as the two frogs are having such a casual conversation that could be relatable to everyday conversations that people have. I'm not sure if young children would pick up on this but I personally think it makes it more humorous for adults.

I noticed that the frogs throughout the duration of the book are the centre of attention, and with the exception of when the second frog falls in, they are not in the water, yet on the front cover they are pictured in the water..

The colours are very realistic and accurate to what children might recognise to be what they actually are. This could also indicate that the lily pads, being bright and realist, are a safe place, whereas the water is dark and bluer than one might expect which could represent that it isn't safe.
" said.

" Funny and engaging. This is wonderfully illustrated and told in the style of a clever joke. The two frogs make an excellent odd couple. My son and I enjoy this and I enjoy reciting it to friends. " said.
