999 Frogs Wake Up

by

999 Frogs Wake Up Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“We’ll have to move,” says Mother, after realizing the pond is too small.  But moving a family of 999 young frogs is fraught with danger! Hungry snakes are crawling through the grass. Hungry hawks are flying through the sky. A young frog makes a mighty tasty morsel.  

Never underestimate the quick wits of 999 young frogs!

Review:

"The 999 tadpoles from Kimura's first book are frogs now, but their mother takes the responsibility of keeping track of them just as seriously as before: 'No matter how many times she counted, she could still only find 998 froglets. ‘That's strange,' she said.' Murakami's frogs are simple, primitive, papercut-style forms with outsize heads, gold eyes, and pink dots for mouths. It's the artful way they are scattered across the white pages that gives the spreads their graphic impact. Once the missing 999th frog has been awakened, he returns the favor by waking a turtle and other animal neighbors, who delight in spring's arrival. When — reprising the joke of 999 Tadpoles — he pulls what turns out to be a still-snoozing snake out of its hole, Mother Frog saves the day. Free of irony and full of innocent, even clichéd, wonder at the beauties of spring ('I always oversleep and miss seeing the flowers, but this year I am awake on time. Thank you!' says the turtle), this book is a gift to the youngest readers, who should thoroughly enjoy it. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The vibrant and fun illustrations of Lila Prap make this non-fiction picture book about Dinosaurs irresistible

Synopsis:

Wake up—it’s springtime in the swamp! As 999 young frogs awaken, they panic to find that all of the other animals are still asleep. First they wake the biggest frog… then the tortoise, the lizard, and the ladybugs. But when they hop down a hole and all pull together, they find someone they don’t want to wake—a big, long snake. Don’t wake him up! Luckily for the frogs, the tortoise carefully carries him away.

Ken Kimura and Yasunari Murakami are back again in this delightful tale about frogs and friendship!

Synopsis:

Farley has a problem - a big problem and there's no keeping it under wraps, because Farley farts, a lot, all the time, everywhere, everyday! A hilarious tale about a frog who will have kids rolling on the floor laughing!

Synopsis:

Farley the frog can't stop farting. The doctor says it's only gas and it will pass. The trouble is, it does! Comic pictures and a tongue-in-cheek text relate how Farley and his family learn that it's better to fart and bear the shame than not to fart and bear the pain!
