Froggy promises hell take care of Doggy: put on her collar, take her for a walk, and teach her to sit up and beg. But Doggy proves harder to train than Froggy anticipatedand hed forgotten about pooperscooper duty!
Peppy illustrations capture Froggy with his new pup, as well as his disdain for the dreaded pooper-scooper. This one wont disappoint his loyal fans.”Booklist
Praise for Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz's Froggy books: "A good choice for reading aloud.... Any youngster who has ever bundled up for wintertime will surely laugh out loud over this addled amphibian's constant dressing and undressing."—Publishers Weekly on Froggy Gets Dressed “Perfect to comfort any kid a little hesitant at the first swimming lesson. Giggles come with the lesson.”—The Orlando Sentinel on Froggy Learns To Swim “The accessible text, with its sound effects and overall sense of fun, is a pleasure to read aloud. Even nonreaders can enjoy the story through the cartoonlike illustrations. Another winning entry in the Froggy series.”—Booklist on Froggy Goes To Bed

About the Author
The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father's home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys' home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The manuscript of the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and CURIOUS GEORGE was published in 1941. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. CURIOUS GEORGE has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.
