Bookbug's Book of the Month: Oi Frog! by Kes Gray & Jim Field

Written by Kes Gray and Illustrated by Jim Field

Hodder Children's Books, ISBN:1444910868


"Oi frog! sit on the log!" said cat. But frog doesn't want to. Sitting on logs is uncomfortable and can give you splinters in your bottom. But if lions sit on irons, and gorillas sit on pillars, then what choice does he have?


“A hilarious rhyming story with great words, great illustrations and a brilliant story outcome. There’s no doubt this would make a perfectly entertaining bed time favourite and it’s an excellent book to share – it had us all here in the Early Years Office laughing out loud!”

- Andra Iulian, Early Years Outreach Administrator
