Grumpy Frog

Publisher: Penguin Random House Children’s Books

Frog doesn’t like any other colour apart from green, and especially not pink. He also doesn’t like it when he doesn’t win. When Frog is grumpy, the other frogs go off without him and swim and bounce, but Frog doesn’t want to do those things either. And when he sits alone on his log, he realises that he misses hopping, and misses his friends.

There is someone else who likes green: Crocodile! But he eats grumpy frogs… Perhaps the solution is to be nice? When Frog says sorry, it’s time to be friends again.

Frog’s journey is a recognisable one for little ones (and for all of us) that need to learn a little about tolerance. Ed Vere’s adorable illustration and sense of humour tells a wonderful story about little Frog overcoming his own anger and trying to think about others. The surprisingly reasonable crocodile and the rainbow-coloured pages of happiness are sweet and funny touches that help make a very special book that children will love.
