Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Caldecott Medalist Arnold Lobel (1933-1987) comes a brand-new collection of rhyming stories about frogs and toads. Discovered by his daughter, Adrianne Lobel, The Frogs and Toads All Sang has the same warmth, compassion, and humor that is found in his best-loved work. Brimming with sweet silliness, this new book reminds us why Arnold Lobel's characters continue to be so popular years after debut.

Review:

"Originally created by the late Lobel as a handmade book for a fellow author, these poems and pencil sketches (skillfully given washes of color by his daughter, Adrianne) are the progenitors of Lobel's classic Frog and Toad series. But even kids who haven't spent much time with those amphibious friends will find plenty to enjoy. As befits something made for a friend, the drawings of genteelly domesticated amphibians large and small bring to mind the spontaneity, intimacy and exuberance of the sketchpad; even the very young should sense that Lobel was a man who was delighted to see his imagination take shape on paper. He versifies expertly and with gentleness: a green frog's virtuosity on the violin doesn't keep him from yearning, 'And yet.../ I'd rather play/ The clarinet.' Polliwogs, their bodies composed almost entirely of broad, mischievous grins, revel in a school where 'all we do is wiggle./ We do not read.../ We do not write.../ We only squirm and giggle.' A lovely addition to anyone's Lobel bookshelf. Ages 4 — 7. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Arnold Lobel (1933-1987) was a Caldecott Medalist who illustrated more than seventy picture books during his career, writing twenty-eight of them. His books feature all kinds of animals—pigs, mice, cats, baboons, elephants, owls, alligators—but he is probably best known for his four award-winning I Can Read books: Frog and Toad Are Friends, Frog and Toad Together, Frog and Toad All Year, and Days with Frog and Toad. These beloved characters, who have taught countless kids to love reading, grew out of stories Arnold Lobel told his young daughter, Adrianne Lobel.
