Praise

* ”First-time author Petty’s dialogue between a frog father and his son makes its point about accepting one’s nature with a big grin. . . . The story might create similar gratitude in the minds of readers—or it might just make them giggle.”
Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

“A lively look at self-acceptance.”
Kirkus Reviews

“This amusing story ends with a laugh and a much more content frog.”
School Library Journal

“Silliness and deadpan humor combine into a hopping good story of being happy with who you are.”
Booklist

“A paean to self-acceptance wrapped in snappy dialogue and illustrated with richly colored comic paintings.”
Wall Street Journal

“Petty and Boldt provide just enough predictability to hook youngest readers, then deliver a delightful twist or two to create surprise and satisfaction—for both the green hero and the many fans he’ll make with this book.”
Shelf Awareness

“This lighthearted exploration of identity will delight as a readaloud.”
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
