Product Description

From Amazon

On the occasion of Froggy's parents' anniversary, it's time for the family to head for Chez Yum, a hoity-toity restaurant with tablecloths and flower-filled vases. This means trouble. Froggy only has a few rules to remember--"Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table"--but it's absolutely not that simple. Froggy fidgets, shakes salt on his hand and licks it, bangs his spoon on the table, flips his spoon (bonk! oops!), pulls petals off flowers, sucks on sugar cubes (and ice cubes), and then, of course, simply must flop around singing. Just as he's getting down to actually eating, he spies his pretty classmate Frogilina, a guest star from Froggy's First Kiss. This doesn't help matters. As an embarrassed Froggy ducks under the tablecloth, spaghetti and fly sauce goes, well, flying. At that, the whole family gives up and heads to a local diner for burgers and flies. Youngsters will giggle out loud at the oh-so-familiar stunts (and trademark Froggy sound effects) of an irrepressible frog faced with the dreaded Fancy Dinner. This fine addition to the much-loved Froggy series could serve as a lighthearted way to approach table etiquette, but mostly it's just good messy fun. (Ages 3 to 6) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of Froggy will welcome Froggy Eats Out by Jonathan London, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz, featuring the hero in bow tie, suspenders and spats sized to fit his webbed feet. "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table," reminds Froggy's mom as he enters a fancy restaurant with his parents. This is not easy for Froggy, especially when he notices Frogilina at a nearby table. (Viking, $15.99 32p ages 2-7 ISBN 0-670-89686-1; May)

A good story with nice illustrations, but the message it sends is not necessarily a good one to teach little kids when it comes to manners and listening to mom and dad.
Froggy goes to a fancy restaurant with his parents on their anniversary, and he is not on his best behavior! He fidgeted, shook the salt shaker, flipped silverware, and ran around the restaurant. When his spaghetti arrived, he began slurping it noisily. That's when he's seen by Frogilina, the pretty girl frog. Froggy is so discombobulated by seeing her that he accidentally pulls the tablecloth and upsets the spaghetti onto himelf, causing further embarrassment. Froggy's parents then basically say "Oh well," and take him to a burger joint instead.
To me, the book sends mixed messages. On the one hand, it seems the author is saying that it's okay to be a kid. But on the other hand, it seems that Froggy gets away with bad behavior, not only without any repercussions, but he even gets a reward!
For a funny story with a good message, I recommend Big Bad Bunny by Alan Durant and Guy Parker-Rees.

Froggy's going out to dinner tonight to help celebrate his parent's wedding anniversary. He's hoping for burgers and flies, but instead the family's eating at Chez Yum, a fancy sit down restaurant with tablecloths, candles and flowers on the table. Froggy has only three rules to remember...be neat, be quiet and no feet on the table. But even three rules are too many for this little pre-school frog. While waiting for dinner to arrive, he spills his water glass, fidgets and plays with the salt. Then he spends some time playing with the silverware, pulling petals off the flowers, blowing out the candles and sucking on sugar cubes and ice. Froggy finally can't take the wait any longer and gets off his chair, hopping and flopping and singing all over the restaurant. As dinner arrives, he sees a friend across the room, and while trying to hide under the table, pulls the entire meal onto the floor..... Nobody captures the essence of a busy pre-schooler, with places to go, people to see and things to do, as well as Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz. Their creative and descriptive text is full of energy and sound effects and complemented by wonderfully bright and expressive artwork. Children and adults alike will smile, giggle and laugh as they watch the sometimes all too familiar antics of this little frog and his family. Froggy Eats Out is a terrific new addition to this popular series and a picture book that shouldn't be missed.

Before I read this book, I came up with a joke about a department store which I thought was a restaurant. Once I saw the book, I remembered my joke that if you went out to eat at the department store which I thought was a restaurant, everybody would be very hungry(because it's not a restaurant)and started telling the story to my friends with the same material, except in the end of my version, as the family leaves mad at Froggy, they see a billboard for the department store described above, then go to eat there and the consequence is that everybody ends up very hungry(because they try going to eat somewhere that isn't even a restaurant). In other words, my joke about the department store
would be very useful in this story as it would be better than the real ending!

I read this to my kindergarden students who loved it. The book is a consciousness raising story for children about how to behave in a restaurant. From an adult perspective the author should have had the parents say at the end, "Froggy, we should have realized that you are not grown up enough for a fancy restaurant," since it was a mistake to take him; the ending would have made better sense. While none of the students said they thought Froggy was being rewarded for his bad behavior with a trip to "Burger and Flies", it looked that way to me.

What can I say? I first found out about the Froggy books when I was substituting in the local elementary school Media Center. I saw how raptly the children listened and how they all ran up afterwards to try to check the book out for themselves. Since that time I have bought most of the series to read to my granddaughter, Emily, who loves them. She especially loves the part where one of the characters calls out "F-R-O-G-G-Y!!". Each time I finish reading one of these books, Emily immediately says "Again." That's enough for me!

I was quite surprised and disappointed to see Froggy being rewarded by a trip to his favorite fast food restaurant after he behaved miserably at the restaurant his parents chose. Reinforcing misbehavior is not appropriate. I expected a book to help my kids understand how to behave in a restaurant setting (which they almost always do). I do not plan to read this book to my kids again - I think it sends the wrong message. I find that very unfortunate since we love the other Froggy books we have.
