REVIEW: The Frog in the Skyscraper by Faiz Kermani

**** (4) out of 5 stars

This is a cute little story about Frijibold the Frog. Instead of the ordinary life at the pond with his extended family, he longs to do something more grand, and hatches a plan to land in a new apartment building. Fate seems to smile on him… for a time. But he soon learns that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the road.

This is a very good book for newly independent readers, or even as a read-aloud for younger children. The fairly short chapters make it easy to navigate; the language is straight forward and simple to follow. The occasional pictures are bright and fun. Kids will probably especially enjoy the menu for Mrs. Boggel’s Pond Paradise CafĂ© and its description of all the frog delicacies offered there. 

I received a free copy of this eBook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!
