The Frog in the Skyscraper

The Frog in the Skyscraper is a wonderful book for children superbly written by Faiz Kremani and skilfully illustrated by Korey Scott.

It tells the story of Frijibold who is a frog in a million, to be honest.

Not for Frijibold the common lilly pad for his accommodation! Because he wants to live in a skyscraper!

He was bored with his life in the pond in the centre of New York.

Oh, no! Not more of the "singing" of his elderly uncle  Krustnut? Exactly how much could a young frog take?

He decided that he would leave his relatives and friends to their life in the pond. Because he wanted to become a dweller in a skyscraper with the humans!

He obtains a luxury apartment in Shark Fin Towers and then everything seems to start happening all at once!

Add some crazed TV presenters, and ambitious property developers and his life becomes one long, action-filled adventure.

But would he tire of this great adventure? Would he begin to pine for his pond life? And would he ever taste another mouthful of Mrs Bogel's spicy fried fly pizza?

It is published by Matador at £9.99.

This is a great book for adults and children and you can buy it at the That's Books and Entertainment bookshop to the right hand side of this review.
