Tissue, Please! Reviews
I was very glad to receive the book. It was chosen for a project in my class. The students enjoyed it. The book was in great shape. Thank You.
A quintet of frogs bicycle, dance, and sneeze together in this book for kids about wiping noses. A book about wiping noses?! It's actually more interesting than it sounds, and not nearly as "gross" as it could have been, thanks to the restrained illustrations and funny story. In Lisa Kopelke's acrylic drawings, the frogs seem puffy and furry-- as if somehow sheep got mixed into the gene pool. The frogs have big expressive eye and eyelids, and long, long legs with huge webbed feet. At first, they look kind of ugly, but they grow on you-so to speak.
This book is a sequel to Excuse Me!, using the same set of froggy characters, quirky illustrations, and subtle humor. Like the first book (which dealt with burping), Tissue, Please! is a book on using good manners, even when body functions get out of hand (literally, in this book - yuck!) The main character, Frog, is having a difficult time with his runny nose and doesn't know about using tissues. He grosses out several adults, before his mother finally introduces him to tissues. There are a few funny scenes (like during the ballet, when frog deftly swoops up a tissue en plie to wipe his nose and the other froggy dancers follow suit.
Clever story about frogs and their runny noses. I like how it gives a message on 'nose manners' without being preachy. Beautiful illustrations and cute dialouge between sniffling frogs!
My child loved this book. My friends loved this book. The writing is good. The pictures are great. My child is really into reading and loves to make snuffy sounds. Does not use a tissue. Makes me crazy. The paintings of the bikes are awesome. The frog friends are cool. The artist highlights details in the colors...like the halo on the nose blowing frog which I find pretty darned impressive. My child may begin to use a tissue now.
