"One of the very best picture books of 2012"
"Suitable for beginning readers, the humorous antics of Frog and Fly will be enjoyed by preschoolers as well. Bright, cartoonlike illustrations fill the pages, some of which have two panels clearly delineated by white frames, adding to the cartoon feel. This would be a fun reader’s theater for storytime or classroom use."--School Library Journal
