Summary
Are kids going to love this book? Is a frog waterproof? The latest title in the popular Strange and Wonderful series delivers the awe-inspiring variety of frogs, the world's hoppiest amphibians.

Did you know that the Goliath frog is more than a foot long? Or that the tiny gold frog could sit on a dime? Some frogs have camouflage. Others wear bold colors warning their enemies that they are poisonous. Some frogs leap, others hop, one is a runner, and a few glide from tree to tree with their big, webbed hands and feet! Surprising facts and beautiful, realistic nature illustrations come together in this celebration of one of nature's most fascinating marvels.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The latest volume in the dependable Strange and Wonderful series introduces frogs. The book shows how varied these animals are, not just in their sizes, colors, and shapes, but in the sounds they make, their habitats, their development from egg to adult, and their means of protecting themselves and their young. Flowing naturally from one topic to the next, the writing is clear and authoritative. Pringle recognizes what will intrigue children as well as what they need to know to understand the subject. Closely aligned with the text, Henderson's watercolor paintings illustrate the characteristics of specific frogs with precision and beauty. Though no sources are mentioned, two authorities in the field reviewed the manuscript and illustrations. An enjoyable author's note relates Pringle's close encounters with frogs as a child, as a father, as a wildlife photographer, and as a neighborhood ecologist acting locally to protect and even create anuran habitats. A must-have addition to science collections.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
