Review

Field's illustrations are bursting with energy and silliness, and Gray's fertile imagination conjures up bizarre scenarios that will have little ones giggling out loud and making up new rhymes of their own. An absolute treat. - Daily Mail

Laugh out loud funny, with great illustrations... cries out for a second reading immediately! - Bookbag

Hilarious illustrations and rhymes which are easy to recite and join in. Everyone will love it. - The Guardian

A hilarious tale with brilliant illustrations, this book is absolutely perfect for storytime. - Bookseller

Kes Gray and Jim Field make an excellent pairing in this picture book perfectly aimed at young children... a series of increasingly funny scenes, making this a picture book that is fun to share. - Books for Keeps

... a perfect balance of rhyming, humour and repetition.From gophers on sofas to fleas on peas and pumas on satsumas, the story and cartoonish illustrations become progressively funnier. (Favourite 2014 Christmas Books) - The Herald Sun

This book is like a rhyming treat, Accomplishing that special feat, Of mixing up who wrote, who drew, Producing something fresh and new, That overall is very funny, And very worthy of your money. Perfect for 3-5 year-olds who've enjoyed Julia Donaldson. An hilarious re-readable future favourite. - Waterstones --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still my favourite (and those around me) from the 'Oi!' series, to date
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 July 2022
From the back cover of the paperback version ~ 2015/Hodder & Stoughton (image below refers):

🐱 ‘Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools and gophers sit on sofas, but Frog does not want to sit on a log! 🐸

From the award-winning KES GRAY and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, JIM FIELD.

A hilarious rhyming tale about a frog who discovers that all animals have their special places to sit!’

ooOoo

Measuring around 24.5 cm square, the shiny finish card cover is hard to miss in a sunny yellow background, with frog apparently in his designated place...on a log...where else?
Well, this is not just any old frog...this is one who begs to question as it turns out, with a twist at the end that is largely unexpected, for most!

The book begins with the opportunity to claim ownership on the inside cover page.
Across the colourful, matte finish, double page spreads we meet a variety of animals, all with short rhymes that stick in the mind.
We start with Cat, the ‘place’ designator…

Naturally in a book of this kind, the smart illustrations have more in them than first meets the eye, offering scope for further discussion, e.g. facial expressions or the headlines on the rather dapper looking hare's newspaper (image below refers).
The accompanying text, which includes lots of speech & a repeat element, is clear throughout; often ENHANCED at times FOR EFFECT!
