I Don't Want to Be a Frog
by Dev Petty, illustrated by Mike Boldt
Grades PreK-2 32 pages Doubleday February 2015 Hardcover    

There seems to be a number of recent childrenís literary characters facing an identity crisis. In the end, the fish, bear, pigeon, or whatever finds out itís okay to be a fish, bear, pigeon, or whatever.

This time itís a frog. The sassy frog wants to be anything but a frog--until he meets a hungry wolf, and they both learn about the benefits of being a frog.

It might be on the verge of a tired premise but I Don't Want to Be a Frog is sharp and spirited with some tongue in cheek illustrations.
