Book Description

14 Sep 1995 Frog (Book 7)
When a rat comes to live at the edge of their wood, the animals decide they don't like having a stranger in their midst. But Frog is friendly by nature, and decides to find out if Rat is really as unpleasant as he is made out to be. As Frog discovers, Rat is intelligent and good hearted, and proves in a series of unexpected emergencies that the other animals have been too quick to condemn him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be a stranger 15 May 2009
Max Velthuijs' charming series of 'Frog' tales deserves wider acclaim; after the brilliant 'Frog in Love' this is the best of the bunch, as guileless Frog befriends a stranger - Rat - and deals with the prejudice and judgemental attitudes of his friends towards the new face. Morally strong without being patronising or 'preachy', Frog and the Stranger is a great book for our narrow-minded times, and another in an imaginitive and well drawn series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good story presented in an unpatronising manner 30 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I stumbled on these books by Max Velthuijs by accident in the local library.
They are different to normal childrens books in that they present real conflict in the characters. In this case it deals with prejudice and preconceived assumptions. The prejudice is explicitly dealt with for instance the way pig talks about rats as a dirty and thieving lot.

This type of story telling may not be to everyones taste and could be a shock to children who normally are normally read the run of the mill childrens books. For me this was a breath of fresh air, and more importantly my kids love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purchased to read for Anti-bullying week 3 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to read to my Year 2 class during Anti-bullying week based on a friends recommendation. Unfortunately, I didn't order it in time so have put it away ready for an appropriate time. There is a a strong message running through the text and this could lead on to follow up PSHE work.
