999 Tadpoles 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 best moment in this English-language debut, first published in Japan in 2003, comes as Mother and Father Frog try to keep their 999 tadpoles safe from predators as they search for a bigger pond. 'Keep hopping,' Father warns, 'or a scary snake might get you.' Father widens his eyes and sticks out his tongue to show his children what a snake looks like, but it's too late: the next spread reveals a dozen tadpoles holding onto the tail of a large, red... snake. 'Like THIS?' they ask. (Kimura quickly reassures readers: 'The snake was sleeping peacefully. It must just have eaten.') When a hawk seizes Father soon after, what looks like a crisis instead delivers the frogs to a roomy new home. Kimura views the natural world with humor and urges readers not to give in to discouragement ('This is great,' says a tadpole as the hawk drags the entire family through the sky. 'What a view!' says another.) Murakami's naïf spreads, with plenty of white space and many small, absorbing images on every page, ease the tension and provide laughs. Ages 4 — 8. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:
