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.

What happens, when it happens, and to whom it happens is a complete mystery until Tuesday.
