The book "Hoptoad" by Jane Yolen had very dramatic illustrations. All of the illustrations were vibrant and realistic. The illustrations are extremely eye-catching. The actual story includes one to two words on the page which indicates that the story is for a child just beginning to read. She uses a repetitive scheme to instill the storyline within her readers.

Pretty illustrations and happy ending. Otherwise, the story was okay. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152163522, Hardcover)

A boy, his dad, and his dog are out for a drive on a beautiful sunny day. Unfortunately, a hapless toad is trying to make its way across the very same road. Talk about bad timing. Is there any hope of avoiding toad-al disaster? Maybe. See what a sharp-witted and caring boy can do to save the day.
Storyteller Jane Yolen has written a deceptively simple tale that's fun, exciting, and perfect for reading aloud again and again. Illustrator Karen Lee Schmidt has created an irresistible creature--and everyone who meets this toad will root for a happy ending!
