Review: Oi Frog! By Kes Gray and Jim Field

Oi Frog! is a wonderful picture book. It combines humour, rhyming and extraordinary pictures. It all starts off when Cat tells Frog that he is sitting in the wrong place, that frogs are only allowed to sit on logs, just like cats sit on mats. This gets Frog wondering and so asks Cat what other animals sit on. As frog asks and asks his curiosity grows more and more. What will be in store for Frog at the end?

The pictures are colourful and every page draws the eye in with an array of colours. Jim Field draws the animals so that they not only compliment the words well but he adds a little touch of cuteness here and a bit of detail there. Kes Gray is also to be commended because this story not only captivates the reader with new words but makes it humorous as well.

My class (Room 19) loved it. They recommend this book highly. It is a very simple book but it is fun and can amuse any age. Room 19 also said, it is great for kids learning to read because of the rhyming words but also great for the older kids to help them spell.

So pick up Oi Frog! and find out where cows, mules and fleas sit because you already know cats sit on mats...

Thanks to Hachette NZ for providing the review copy.
