Review: (4/5 Stars) – This author takes a courageous concept to teach youngsters about bodily functions. I say this because as a nurse, it is hard to tell kids anything about their bodies and for any length of time. However, the author does it in a story and made it fun. What made him do it; who knows? We all have a little bit of craziness in us and his shows up in his writing and bless him as youngsters love it. I read this story to my grandchildren last week, ages 4 & 6. They LOVED the story and the 6 year old wanted to read it to her brother again by herself. It was just different. The 4 yr old just laughed and loved the art throughout the book. It helped having the pictures in it being a lot of cartoonish for kids and in this case, being green frogs as boys relate!! Of course I had to explain a few concepts afterwards but it didn’t deter from them enjoying the story, I think it would have been a little easier if the ending showed he was actually by his friends because both kids asked where they were when the “plan” was to keep him there. Overall, a good story that plays well with children…
