I noticed that it was a very comedic story and had detailed pictures that caught my attention. I'm not sure if the ending would be scary for younger children. I would recommend the book for ages 5 and up personally.

Beware of the Frog is a book about an old lady Mrs. Collywobbles. She lives on the edge of the forest and it's scary and dark. She has a pet frog that protects her. The frog protected her from Greedy Goblin, smelly trolls, and giant hungry ogres.

I think that this story started off really well. This sweet little old lady owned a pet frog who protected her from bad things. The frog ate three creatures that meant to harm her. To repay the frog she gave him a kiss. Then she turned into a frog herself. That's when the story changed for me. She wasn't pleased with becoming a frog so she ended up eating her pet frog! That shouldn't be the thanks he gets for saving her life! It would be a fun read for your classroom library but I wouldn't focus on it much as a group. ( )

Sweet old Mrs. Collywobbles lives on the edge of a big, dark, scary wood, so it’s a good thing that she has a pet frog to protect her. Too bad for the Greedy Goblin, the Smelly Troll, and the Giant Hungry Ogre, who don’t take this little amphibian seriously (GOBBLE)!
