Fanatical About Frogs

Publisher: Flying Eye

Did you know that if you picked up a Yellow Dyer rain frog, your hands would be stained yellow? Or that the Bornean Flat-Headed frog has no lungs, and breathes entirely through its skin? What about the fact that the Goliath Frog is the largest species of frog in the world, reaching a possible 32 centimetres from nose to ear and weighing around the same as a newborn human baby?

Even more fascinating is a section on frog mythology, where we learn that in Panama, the Panamanian Golden Frog is considered an icon of such good fortune that it adorns lottery tickets and architecture, and enjoys its own National Day on August 14th.

The fifth in Owen Davey’s wonderful non-fiction series about animals (previous volumes have celebrated sharks, monkeys, cats and beetles) adds frogs to the ranks of clear, fascinating reads, accompanied by truly amazing graphic illustration.

Each page is an absolute wonder, presented flawlessly, with just the right level of information for primary school kids to be truly fascinated and inspired to find out more. Highly recommended.
