The rhymes in this book are enormously enjoyable and will have children giggling with delight. Another wonderful book to support phonics, rhyme and early reading, but most of all, to hook in young. * The English Association * The combination of Gray's writing and Field's illustrations work wonderfully once again, no matter what Gray fires at Field, he can draw it. Fans of the series will love this outing as it is essentially more of the same, but delve a little deeper and it is playing with the lore of the world. Not many children's books create a universe in which the characters inhabit, but Gray has achieved it. Fans should grab this with abandon, they will especially love the ending. * The Book Bag * It's a brilliant premise that can run and run, and with such appealing illustrations from Jim Field and such clever rhymes from Kes Gray, here's hoping it does... Colourful, witty and silly. * Book Trust * Oi Frog! was - and still is - a genius concept. The finale will have your little ones (and grown-up readers) giggling in delight. Truly fabulous. * Wales Daily Post * This joyful rhyming text will have children in fits of giggles, and adults enjoying the cleverness of the text. * Parents in Touch * This animal-rhyming silliness goes from strength-to-strength. * The Guardian *
