Summary

Summary

It's a special occasion for Froggy and his parents. They're dining at a fancy restaurant! When they arrive at Chez Yum, Froggy's mom reminds him to be neat and quiet. But it's so hard. Froggy fidgets, he squirms, and he slurps his spaghetti. And then he spots Frogilina. He's so embarrassed he ducks under the tablecloth-and that's when the fun really begins!

"A fun-for-all, tongue-tangling, giggle-getting, 'flop,' 'bonk,' 'slam,' of a rousing read-aloud."
- School Library Journal on Froggy Learns to Swim

Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz collaborated on the nine previous Froggy books: Froggy Gets Dressed, Let's Go, Froggy!, Froggy Learns to Swim, Froggy Goes to School, Froggy's First Kiss, Froggy Plays Soccer, Froggy's Halloween, Froggy Goes to Bed , and the latest, Froggy's Best Christmas .


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 3-6. It's his parents' anniversary, and Froggy and the folks are headed to a fancy restaurant to celebrate. First, though, Froggy has to wash and dress, creating plenty of comedy. At the restaurant, Froggy has trouble sitting still and minding his manners, and when Frogilina appears at a neighboring table, he loses control altogether, launching spaghetti, candles, and flowers into the air. But Froggy's good-natured parents know how to make things right; they all hop to the "fast flies place" for a fun, quick dinner. Sprinkled with wonderful sound effects, the text is well paced for read-alouds, and the bright, cartoonlike drawings nicely illustrate Froggy's irrepressible energy. Froggy fans old and new will relate to this universal situation. Gillian Engberg


Publisher's Weekly Review

Fans of Froggy will welcome Froggy Eats Out by Jonathan London, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz, featuring the hero in bow tie, suspenders and spats sized to fit his webbed feet. "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table," reminds Froggy's mom as he enters a fancy restaurant with his parents. This is not easy for Froggy, especially when he notices Frogilina at a nearby table. (Viking, $15.99 32p ages 2-7 ISBN 0-670-89686-1; May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Froggy flip-flops through another affable adventure as he joins his parents for their anniversary dinner at a fancy restaurant. Used to fast-food joints, he must wash and dress up. He must behave. However, the little frog cannot control himself. Mayhem ensues, and the family ends up eating burgers and flies at Speedy's fast-food restaurant. Full of onomatopoeia, the language is fast paced and fun. Remkiewicz's drawings bring the lovable protagonist and his world to brightly colored light. An excellent contribution to the "Froggy" canon.-Kate McLean, DeKalb County Public Library, Tucker, GA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
