FRANK THE FROG
From the hilariously irreverent author of I Hate Peas, Nelly Catches a Cold and Chocolate Bunny comes another subversive rhyming tale for children. Chubby Frank is addicted to rubbishy fast food -- hot lizard pies, beetle bolognese, deep-fried battered spiders and flies, especially -- but can't win the fit girl frog of his dreams until he makes some drastic lifestyle changes. Apart from a strict new exercise regimen, he learns to eat his bugs grilled or sushi-style.
Lively illustrations from Paula Pang help tell the story. Buy it for $12 from Amazon (link goes here). All the author's proceeds go to the Tabitha Foundation -- "Building lives, building futures, helping the poorest of the poor in Cambodia."
