Something Different: Beware of the Frog by William Bee

September 29th, 2011 by Debbie's World of Books

I’ve been keeping most of my children’s book reviews on a different blog but now with the second child and craziness at work I just don’t have time to maintain both blogs.  So please forgive me if I slip in a children’s book review or two in here and there.

My daughter got this book as a birthday gift from the fabulous Pam from  It’s about a sweet, little old lady named Mrs. Collywobbles who lives at the edge of a big, dark forest with just her pet frog to protect her.  He defends her against the smelly troll, the greedy goblin and the hungry ogre.

My daughter tends to be pretty timid so I wasn’t sure how the book would go over with her but I thought I would give it a try anyway.  Much to my surprise she loved it!  We read it over and over and it even got dragged along into the car for the ride to school.  She was laughing and laughing for the whole ride as she “read” the book out loud after having memorized it.  She did have a few questions at the end that I was a bit stumped on how to answer but this is still a great book that she asks for every night.  She’s even kept it in a safe place under her pillow a few nights just to make sure she would know where to find it the next night.
