The laughter never ends with Oi Frog and friends ...
Don't miss this hilarious follow-up to Oi Frog! and Oi Dog! from the award-winning Kes Gray and Jim Field. A brilliant rhyming read-aloud text, jam-packed with animals and silliness - perfect for children and parents alike.
According to Frog ...
Cats sit on gnats,
Dogs sit on logs,
Raccoons sit on macaroons,
Armadillos sit on pillows and
Chicks sit on bricks.
But wait! Cat doesn't like sitting on gnats, they keep biting his bottom!
Will Frog and Dog help him change the rules?
Can't get enough? Look out for Oi Duck-billed Platypus!, coming out autumn 2018.
