Flip and see who froggy can be!
This is one of those books with pages split horizontally into three sections. In this case, (1) the top of a frog's head, including the eyes, (2) the mouth, and (3) the body, including all four legs and feet. Excluding the first and last two pages that are uncut, there are fourteen three-part pages making forty-two frog parts to mix and match. According to the front cover, that makes more than 3,000 possible combinations. "Just my eyes, just my chin, this is me, until you begin. Flip and see who I can be." Because the book's paper is not very thick, it is a challenge even to assemble all three of the original frog characters as they were before they were cut; however they are all illustrated, pre-cut, on the back cover. Mixing them is easy. As frogs go, they are neither pretty nor life-like, but the illustrations on the front and back cover are a clear guide as to what to expect. Inside the back cover is a photograph of the seven people who make up the imaging company that designed the book. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
