I love the books of David Wiesner, they are imaginative and fun. He has amazing talent. Even as an adult I enjoy looking back through his books, just to admire the gorgeous scenes. It's a classic for any children's book collection.
Fun "read" May 9, 2008
I bought this book and the first night we were to read it, it was read 4 times over and my son still did not want to put it down. The illustrations tell a wonderful imaginative wacky tale of frogs flying into a suburb and having their "night out". We can create the length of the story by spending only as much time as my son wants on each page, taking either seconds or several minutes, since there are no words to read. I liked it and I know my son loved it. A nice "out of the box" story.
Great Book, Invokes the Imagination ! Apr 24, 2008
My son is now 15 and he STILL remembers this book from when he was four or five. It was a huge favorite then and it still is now. I just sent a copy to a good friend with little boys who are sure to enjoy as much as mine did. This is a great book for the imagination and one that kids never tire of -- so many interpretations.
A Wonderful Book Dec 4, 2007
My son is 2 1/2 and we took this book out of the library three weeks ago. He loves this book, and wants it read to him before bed and at nap times. It does not give him bad dreams like some reviewers suggest will happen with little ones. He thinks the frogs flying through the air is so funny. Because there are so few words we make up our own stories as we go, and get a lot of laughs that way. He also loves to "read" the book to himself pointing out things he knows as he flips the pages. I dread having to take it back to the library and will be buying our own copy.
THIS ONE HAS BEEN AROUND AWHILE AND HOPEFULLY WILL BE AROUND A GREAT WHILE LONGER. Dec 2, 2007
This is a beautifully done work. The story is made up of entirely pictures, beautifully done pictures, with great detail and haunting coloring. There are no words. In this case, to be quite frank, words simply are not needed. The story begins at dusk on Tuesday evening. The setting is a local pond. The frogs are all out setting on their lilly pads getting ready to do what frog in ponds have done for aeons. Then it happens. The magic begings. One by one, then in greater numbers, the lilly pads take off and begin flying, taking their frogs with them. What follows is a wonderful, surrealistic journey through the country side and small down. Each encounter, be it animal or human, is hilarious, from a bird to a Gramma setting in her chair and beyond. There are many adventures and many encounters. Still, no words!
This is one of those stories that is an ideal one to curl up with the little one, and go through it, page by page. Take the trip with the frogs! Now do be warned, the adult will actually have to (gasp) think, particularly with the younger ones, as the story needs to be filled in and discussed. What I like about this is that I can read it ten, twenty, thirty times, and come up with as many different versions of the story as numbers of reads. It simply never gets old. Now I note that some reviewers felt that this book may give their child night mares. I cannot imagine such a thing, but each parent knows their child (or should, anyway) and if they feel this will damage the little one in any way, well, they probably should not read it.
The art work in this one is of the highest quality. The author, no doubt, has a wonderful imagination and it show though with each turn of the page. The color and details are a treat to the eye and not only will the child enjoy the pictures, but amost any adult will also. I love the way this one ends too. The author takes us to the next Tuesday evening, about dusk, and.....well, you really need to read this one for your self.\
