Are kids going to love this book? Is a frog waterproof? The latest title in the popular Strange and Wonderful series delivers the awe-inspiring variety of the world's hoppiest amphibians. The goliath frog is more than a foot long. The tiny gold frog could sit on a dime. Some frogs have camouflage. Others wear bold colors warning their enemies that they are poisonous. Some frogs leap, others hop, one is a runner, and a few glide from tree to tree with their big, webbed hands and feet Laurence Pringle's knack for choosing and presenting surprising facts and Meryl Henderson's gift for beautiful, realistic nature illustrations come together once again in a celebration of one of nature's most fascinating marvels.
