My then 5-year-old son insisted on having this book read to him at bedtime every. single. night. for months. Illustrations are hilarious.

This is a beautifully painted wordless book that made me re-think my antagonism to wordless children’s books. Wiesner won a Caldecott for this, and rightly so.

Fantastic book. I like how kids made their story unravel from my representation of the illustrations. Great book!

From the very first illustration I was drawn in. I kept wanting to stare at the frogs to figure out what they were thinking. It was obvious they were having a great time as they rode their lily pads throughout the night. Wiesner's style of illustration invites children to put their own stories to these wordless pictures. Wiesner's books do tend to lean towards older children even if they are wordless. I think seven and up would like this book.
Would I recommend this book? YES. it fires the imagination.

Wonderful illustrations. I'd love to know where the inspiration for the story came from.

This book is technically ALMOST wordless...there are words, but they don't really contribute to the story. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is incredibly clear despite the lack of text.

I like Flotsam best- but maybe I just need more practice at wordless bookreading.
