Fabulous Frogs

By Martin Jenkins

Illustrated by Tim Hopgood

A bright, funny Nature Storybook about all kinds of frogs from prize-winning author Martin Jenkins, stylishly illustrated by Tim Hopgood.

Winner of an SLA Award. Conservation biologist Martin Jenkins takes a funny and affectionate look at frogs around the world, from the mighty West African Goliath frog and colourful South American Poison Arrow frog to the south-east Asian Flying frog and the humble frog in your garden pond. Both author and illustrator delight in the diversity and occasional weird behaviour of these small and much loved creatures. Tim Hopgood's bold and playful illustrations succeed in capturing each frog's defining characteristics, and the largest and smallest frogs in the world are drawn to scale which helps bring them to life even more. An engaging and informative book with captions, fact pages and an index.

'Bright, funny Nature Storybook about frogs from prize-winning Martin Jenkins, stylishly illustrated by Tim Hopgood.' The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide

'None of the frog species featured in this lovely picture book is Indian but each one the conservation biologist Martin Jenkins has selected is strange and wonderful in its own way […] Illustrator, Tim Hopgood has done these and the other frogs proud in his cracking pictures. A frogilicious book!' Red Reading Hub

'This book explores frogs from around the world in a most lively and beautifully illustrated way. From the tadpole-filled endpapers to the colourful and sometimes life-size pictures you will learn all about the huge diversity of frogs. The author, a conservation biologist, describes both unusual and familiar frogs, from the African Clawed frog to the male Darwin’s frog that looks after its tadpoles in a pouch in its throat. There are plenty of fascinating facts about frogs in this stylish and lavishly illustrated book with the added benefits of interesting and informative captions and an index.' SLA Award citation
