Frog has decided that he doesn't want to be a frog. After all, frogs are slimy and wet. Perhaps a cat. Or a rabbit. Or an owl. All sound great, except for the fact that he is a frog. Turns out frogs do have their upsides though. Wolves don't like to eat them.
Be yourself. It isn't a subtle message, but it is told in a humorous and fun way. Sure to appeal to Mo Willems and Jon Klassen, I Don't Want To Be a Frog may just be one of those books that kids force their parents to read over and over and over and over again.
