What Frog is saying about the Book of Frog:The Book of Frog is probably the best book ever written, right up there with The Divine Comedy and Gilgamesh. Except it's short and in English! A cinch, huh? You will like it. In addition to being action-packed and by me, it has some great pictures (also of me). And it has some excellent emails from my friend Al, who is extremely smart. You will learn stuff you never knew, maybe even be enlightened. (It's possible.) If you think that because it is a book by a frog, it has nothing for you, you are wrong. Frogs are the best. Even Al thinks so. It talks about Schubert and baseball and green onion pancakes. With ponzu sauce! And there are heaps of tips on how to manage the humans in your life. What are you waiting for? Get your copy today! Get copies for all your friends! Release your inner amphibian! It's like they say: small, gutsy and gorgeous. Also green! On real paper with real ink. Accept no substitutes.
