FRANK ASCH has written and illustrated more than sixty books for children, including the popular Good Night, Baby Bear. He lives in Vermont.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2A satisfying read-aloud with just enough adventure, wit, and common sense to engage listeners and vocabulary easy enough for beginning readers. When Baby Bird falls out of her nest, Little Frog leaps to the rescue. The bird rejects his offer of a moonlit swim but accepts his help building a place to sleep for the night. The two complete a handsome nest just as a hungry raccoon arrives, sending frog to water and bird onto a tree branch. Though too young to fly, the fledgling discovers that she can hop rather well when sufficiently motivated. When the danger passes, Little Frog shows her how to utilize her newfound skill to get back to her mamas nest. Friendship, industry, and courage are the themes woven throughout. Aschs trademark pen-and-ink drawings have been colorized in Adobe Photoshop. The technique is very effective with deep, rich color fading to lighter shades when the moonlight glows or a firefly flutters. Another gem for Aschs many fans to treasure and a treat for the uninitiated.Jody McCoy, The Bush School, Seattle, WA
