Frog & Toad Up Bk

Arnold Lobel, Lobel. HarperCollins, $9.95 (10pp) ISBN 978-0-06-023986-2

Beloved friends Frog and Toad return in this work, a happy marriage of three of the original stories with clever paper engineering. The stories retain all of their wit and charm, and are enhanced by Lobel's intricate, lively full-color pictures that fold out and pop up and add a three-dimensionality that brings the tales to life. With the aid of cardboard tabs, readers can watch Toad's seeds grow, see the two friends splashing in the river, help them fly a kite, and accompany them on more adventures. This fun-filled book should prove a big winner on bookstore shelves. (3-6)
