Fans of the hit picture book I Don’t Want to Be a Frog will love this silly, stubborn-as-ever companion book.

"Reminiscent of Mo Willems’s 'Elephant and Piggie' series"—Publishers Weekly

Frog does NOT want to grow up. Doesn’t need to be tall. Doesn’t want to be able to jump high enough to see the tree frogs. He’s just FINE being small. Besides, if you grow up, you don’t get to do fun things like jump in mud puddles with your best friend, Pig. Do you?
 
This hilarious story­—which uses humor to teach that it’s great being exactly who you are—is sure to bring a smile to every kid who just wants to stay a kid, in addition to those who are the smallest in their class. It’s a sly and smartly funny tale that will have children and parents laughing together.

"An enjoyable read-aloud"—Kirkus
