About the Book
About the Author
  • About the Book
    It’s the Frog family reunion, and all of Joe’s relatives have gathered together. Everybody’s having fun—everyone except for Joe. With so many Frogs around, you’d think that surely somebody would play with Joe, but everyone says he’s too big, too small, too fast, or too slow. No matter where poor Joe turns, all he hears is “no” . . . until a very special guest arrives—someone with an appreciation for Joe and his boundless energy, someone who even has her own set of wheels.

    Bright, appealing illustrations feature Joe’s mishaps with all kinds of things that go: tricycles, skateboards, roller skates, and more.

  • Reviews
    Anderson's art, with its expressive lines full of brightly colored action, are clean visual narratives depicting Joe in red overalls while trying everything with wheels, from skateboard to toy train and toy airplane to baby buggy. The simple rhymed text has the kind of legs that Joe would admire: tireless, and shot through with the music of motion.

    Kirkus Reviews

    True to the small child's viewpoint of a world full of powerful grownups, the latest uproarious picture book about Joe the frog perfectly captures Joe's frustration as he tries to get attention and join the adults' activities at a family reunion. . . . Illustrated with bright, boisterous line-and-watercolor pictures, the simple rhyming text . . . will draw story-hour listeners as well as beginning readers to a scenario they may recognize.

    Booklist, ALA

    Beginning readers will enjoy the rollicking rhyme and equally active art. They will also identify with Joe's need for attention and the endless refusals he receives. . . . A book with a lot of child appeal.
