Praise

★  ”Never underestimate the chaotic fun that magic and an angry bouncing ball can create. . . .Caple’s tidy panels and pastel-hued cartoons make a surprisingly effective setting for the slapstick, which should have young readers giggling. Simple sentences—often just subject and verb—with lots of repetition propel the action. Frog’s nonsense-word spells (‘Poof Wiffle, Bop Bip!’) are both funny and excellent practice in phonetics. Fast and furious action guaranteed to keep new readers laughing and turning pages.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
 
“An amusing book for beginning readers.”—Booklist
 
“Anthropomorphized characters are at the center of this engaging, entertaining early reader. The comic format allows the action to play out visually, complementing the limited text. Caple’s artwork has a soft, animated quality that provides a comforting touch. . . . An amusing tale for beginning readers, in a comic style that will build reading skills while providing ample laughs.”—School Library Journal
