From Our Editors

"Five very short stories (told) in a direct and ingenious style, appealing because of their ease and the familiarity of the situations. . . . The give-and-take of a fast friendship (between Frog and Toad) is gently affectionate".--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. Three-color illustrations. Caldecott Honor Book; ALA Notable Children's Books of 1940-1970; School Library Journal Best of the Best
