Your child will read this at face value, and cheerily laugh whenever the frogs do, utterly missing all irony. But you, as the scenario becomes ever more elaborate and unlikely, will chortle till your sides hurt. There’s a scary pike and heron page, but fear not, the frogs hop away from harm. Excellent illustrations too. Highly unusual toddler tale, retaining internal logic (not reliably the case for many, I find) and with a tiny postscript illustration to double the punchline. Be prepared to explain what a javelin is.
