Reviews

In Froggy and friends' latest adventure, they enter a marching band contest, and Miss Martin's rules are clear: "Don't look left/ Don't look right/ And Don't stop for Anything!" So when they reach the reviewing stand, the obedient hero gets bonked in the head by Frogilina's falling baton in Froggy Plays in the Band by Jonathan London, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz. ( Feb.)

PreS-Gr 2-Froggy is back. After reading a sign in school about a marching band contest and a "Big Prize!" he follows the suggestion of the music teacher to start one with his friends and compete against other schools. He remembers his dad's old saxophone in the attic and then he gets: "Max on drums-. Leah on triangle-. Emma on recorder-. And Hannah, her twin, on cymbals-." Frogilina doesn't play an instrument, but she can twirl a baton. The music teacher tells them the rules for marching bands: "Don't look left. Don't look right. And DON'T STOP FOR ANYTHING!" Finally, after three weeks of practicing, the big day arrives. Everyone is looking straight ahead, and not stopping for anything, until Frogilina tosses her baton-and misses-knocking Froggy down right in front of the judges' stand. Remkiewicz's vividly colorful and animated signature illustrations will produce the same results that all Froggy fans enjoy-giggles, laughter, and fun-whether the book is read aloud or independently. However, this is a slightly different protagonist: he's more focused and independent. These added dimensions are particularly evidenced in how he handles this mishap. Froggy is growing up. What a great transition for children to witness, even if he is green.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
