'In the read often pile...'

The Frog Band and the Mystery of Lion Castle

The Frog Band and the Mystery of Lion Castle was reviewed by mum Emma and Christopher, aged 4, in The Guardian Children's Books online. 'What higher praise can we give this book than that it is in the 'read often' pile? Christopher loved the detailed pictures. We would read a page then talk about the picture. ... The Frog Band is an adventure story with lots of excitement and gives you plenty to talk about with your child afterwards, which makes it perfect for the inquisitive child in your house. ... We will definitely be investing in more of this series.'

'This story is about Alphonse, the big fat frog'

'He has lots of adventures like getting chased by the Frog Band, sneaking through the house on the hill, climbing through the sewers, and cycling over a boat and into the sea! ... I like about this book when Alphonse gets kicked out of the window and when he lands in the sea because these bits are really funny.'

This review of The Frog Band and the Onion Seller by a young girl called 'SuperEva' was posted on The Guardian children's books 'by kids, for kids' website! We think it says everything we love about this book!
