Frog in Love, Paperback (January 2015)» View all books by Max Velthuijs
In the very first story to feature the loveable amphibian, Frog is feeling most unwell. He keeps getting hot, then cold, and something inside his chest is going 'thump, thump'. Hare says it means he's in love! But who with? And how can he show his devotion - perhaps by performing the biggest jump ever?
US Kirkus Review » The hero of Frog in Love (1989) deals with another rite of passage after he finds a dead bird. Friend Pig thinks the bird is asleep, Duck wonders whether it's ill, but Hare explains: "Everything dies." The four bury the bird, remember his lovely song - then go on to a happy afternoon celebrating life. The evening song of another blackbird confirms the message: life goes on. The quiet blend of curiosity, respect, and joy in Velthuijs's text is enhanced by the simplicity of his bright, beautifully designed art. (Kirkus Reviews)
