Froggy is getting a pet--and only a dog will do! Mom has agreed: Froggy can have a pet. Off to the pet store they go. Mom would prefer a bunny or some mice, but Froggy and his little sister, Pollywogilina, have their hearts set on a doggy. And when Froggy sees the little dog with big brown eyes, he begs to take her home. Froggy promises he'll take care of Doggy: put on her collar, take her for a walk, and teach her to sit up and beg. But Doggy proves harder to train than Froggy anticipated--and he'd forgotten about pooperscooper duty! "Peppy illustrations capture Froggy with his new pup, as well as his disdain for the dreaded pooper-scooper. This one won't disappoint his loyal fans."--Booklist

Review quote

Praise for Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz's Froggy books: "A good choice for reading aloud.... Any youngster who has ever bundled up for wintertime will surely laugh out loud over this addled amphibian's constant dressing and undressing."--Publishers Weekly on Froggy Gets Dressed "Perfect to comfort any kid a little hesitant at the first swimming lesson. Giggles come with the lesson."--The Orlando Sentinel on Froggy Learns To Swim"The accessible text, with its sound effects and overall sense of fun, is a pleasure to read aloud. Even nonreaders can enjoy the story through the cartoonlike illustrations. Another winning entry in the Froggy series."--Booklist on Froggy Goes To Bed "Froggy's natural exuberance and excitement are infectious..."--School Library Journal
