About the Author:

EVE BUNTING has written many books for children, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz. A recipient of the prestigious Kerlan Award, she lives in Southern California.

SCOTT MEDLOCK is well known for his sports paintings, which have been exhibited internationally and have brightened several books for young readers. He lives in Moorpark, California.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-In a sensitive and honest story, Bunting captures the heartache of a child whose parent doesn't follow through on a promised excursion. Billy lives with his mother and grandparents, but his father has arranged to take him to catch a frog for his class' frog-jumping competition. When his father fails to show up and the expedition is threatened, his understanding mom and grandparents step in and help the boy learn that his life is really "very good the way it is," although his dad's presence would have enhanced the occasion. The author does an excellent job of presenting a realistic situation and its resolution in straightforward yet eloquent prose. Medlock's bright oil illustrations appear on almost every page, adroitly mirroring the child's emotions and the contest events. This is an early chapter book, but its subject matter will appeal to slightly older readers as well.
