In the next book in the I Don't Want to be a Frog series, young Frog learns an unexpected lesson about how NOT to be bored. Perfect for fans of Mo Willems's Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back Frog is bored. He can't find ANYTHING to do--even when his animal friends make good suggestions, like sleeping all day, licking between his toes, or hopping around and then staring off into space. Will he find a fun and exciting way to spend his day? Featuring the beloved characters from I Don't Want to Be a Frog and I Don't Want to Be Big, this new story is sure to bring a smile to every kid who's ever said "There's nothing to do " ★ "Snappy, spot-on dialogue pairs ideally with the outsize drama of Boldt's artwork; reading this book belongs on families' to-do lists." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "In a structured, overstimulated world, downtime needs to be appreciated, and this small amphibian shows the way."--Kirkus
