Book review – Leap Frog

Leap Frog by Jane Clarke and Britta Teckentrup⁠

The latest in a short series of books, this is for the younger end of the picture book age range and is created very much as a parent/child ‘interactive’ story.⁠

The simple story is about Felix the frog who is rather frightened of the scary noises in the jungle and needs somewhere safe to go to sleep. The ‘interactive’ quality is what sets this apart however as there are instructions along the way, things to spot on the page and sounds of the jungle to make. “Shoo – slithery snake!”⁠

The illustrations have a wonderfully ‘Hungry Caterpillar’ feel about them in terms of style, again befitting the age range. They are also bright and eye-catching with the use of some special fluorescent quality inks.⁠

It would be worth checking out the duo’s other titles in the series too. They are ‘Firefly Home’ and ‘Neon Leon’. Plus, I’ve reviewed the beautiful ‘Under the Same Sky’ by the same illustrator here.⁠
