Youngsters will laugh out loud at Froggy’s funny, clever and resourceful solution to his problem, while readers of all ages will love the way the personality of this adorable amphibian shines in HOPPY FROGGY, the debut children’s book by author Lorraine Nelson and illustrator Sharon Wilson-Dupuis.

A unique feature about the book, and one that children are sure to love, is the activity pages at the back of the book.

Lorraine and Sharon, sisters from New Brunswick, Canada, always said that one day they’d produce books together. Fans of Ms. Nelson’s romantic suspense novels might recall that Ms. Wilson-Dupuis also was the illustrator for the covers in the Hudson Ranch series.

Ms. Nelson came up with the concept for this book when her first-born grandson, Samuel, was 3 years old. The sisters teamed up to create HOPPY FROGGY for their now, combined, seven grandchildren, and they dedicate this book to grandchildren everywhere. Lorraine’s clever text brought to life through Sharon’s skillful illustrations combine for a book that is sure to be a story-time hit.

This was given to me for an honest review. First of all I have to say I love frogs. The illustration throughout the book will give kids a laugh. The illustrations were honestly great, fun for kids. Mrs. Nelson also represented the book very well. This is for the young reader ages 3 – 7. I recommend this book to your children, it is fun and enjoyable. I think the whole family will love to read over and over.
Please note: Hoppy Froggy is also available in print.

Hoppy Froggy“A delightful book for children. Beautiful illustrations.”

“I recommend this book to your children, it is fun and enjoyable.”

This is what people are saying about Hoppy Froggy and I couldn’t be happier. The book is based on a poem that I wrote for my oldest grandson, Samuel, when he was just three years old. Thunder boomed overhead and lightning lit up the sky and he was frightened by the storm. He always enjoyed sitting on my knee and ‘writing’ on my computer, so that evening we sat and wrote this poem. Why frogs? Because he loves them. 🙂

From the time we were kids, I loved to write and my sister, Sharon Wilson-Dupuis, loved to draw. We always said that one day we’d do a book for kids. Well, folks, this is it. Hoppy Froggy is her first venture into watercolor and she did a fantastic job on the illustrations. Her attention to detail is amazing and she exceeded my expectations, which were pretty high to begin with. 🙂
