Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This is a wonderful, imaginative, and hilarious bedtime story that I know kids will love.  Hop on board as an army ( yes that's what they are called ) of little froggies who are supposed to be drifting off to sleep are NOT co-operating!  They want to escape from under the covers and go on adventures where they practice their accordions, play dress-up, go for long drives in the country, joust like knights, fire themselves out of cannons and fly off into the universe on their spaceships, just to name a few. Sounds like a very busy night ahead doesn't it?  Their imaginative antics will both delight and entertain kids.  

The illustrations are truly amazing... full of detail, expression and creativity.  I love them.  The story is engaging and is a perfect read aloud to read again and again.  This book belongs not only in homes but in classrooms and school libraries also.  I highly recommend it and give high praise to Gustavson on his debut book and encourage him to   keep on creating.
