Author Notes

Jonathan London was born a "navy-brat" in Brooklyn, New York, and raised on Naval stations throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. He received a Masters Degree in Social Sciences but never formally studied literature or creative writing. He began to consider himself a writer about the time he graduated from college. After college he became a dancer in a modern dance company and worked at numerous low-paying jobs as a laborer or counselor. He wrote poems and short stories for adults, earning next to nothing despite being published in many literary magazines. For some 20 years before he penned his first children's book, London was writing poetry and short stories for adults. In the early 1970s, he was reading his poems in San Francisco jazz clubs, and those experiences found their way into his witty children's book Hip Cat, which has been featured on the PBS children's television show Reading Rainbow.

After writing down the tale The Owl Who Became the Moon in 1989, London began to wonder if other people might want to read it. He picked up his kids' copy of Winnie-the-Pooh and saw that the book was published by Dutton, so he casually decided to send his story to them. Surprisingly enough, they wanted to publish him. Working with different illustrators, and occasionally with co-authors, London has produced literally dozens of books. Most have appeared under his name, but some have come out under a pseudonym, which still remains a secret.He has published over forty books and has earned recognitions from organizations like the National Science Teachers Association.

Booklist Review

Ages 4^-6. Froggy can't decide what to be for Halloween. Should he be Super Frog or something scarier like Vampire Frog? He finally decides on Frog Prince--his black cape, mom's black tights, a gold crown, and his mighty sword. This turns out to be the scariest costume of all: he looks so smashing that Frogilina chases after him to give her prince a kiss. Although he manages to escape the dreaded smooch, his bad luck continues when he discovers his mighty sword tore a hole in his candy bag and he lost all his treats on the way home. Even so, there's still a happy ending to his Halloween. Froggy's mom has a whole bowl of treats that nobody else seemed to like: chocolate-covered flies--Froggy's favorite. Yum! An enjoyable, light-hearted comedy of errors, cheerfully illustrated with festive Halloween details. --Lauren Peterson


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2 Froggy approaches Halloween with the same boundless enthusiasm that he brings to everything else in his life. As usual, though, he goes too far and embarrasses himself. After much deliberation, he decides to dress as the Frog Prince, making himself so cute that Frogilina cannot resist giving him a kiss. Froggy leapfrogs away but somehow finds himself on a front porch with Frogilina falling on top of him. It is enough to make any frog blush. He loses his candy as he jumps home but his mother is ready with his favorite treat chocolate-covered flies. The bright cartoon pictures clearly complement the text. Glee, surprise, happiness, pride, and shame are all flawlessly expressed on the faces of Froggy and his friends. Children will just love this frog, and non-scary Halloween stories are much needed, especially good ones. Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
