Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed this fantasy/sci fi adventure romp. Frog lives on an island with his friend Buttercup. Buttercup has always told Frog that he is a prince, and that he would rule over everywhere where it not for the fact that the end of the world had come. Frog is bored of living on the tiny island, eating veg that tastes like burp, and one day he sets off to see if the world really has ended. What he finds amazes him.
This is the first in a series, or at least I hope it is, as although it is a stand alone adventure, the last chapter sets up the possibility of more in the future.
Frog's own story is wonderfully written, and I love his creative spelling. I also thought that the humorous elements of the story were excellent, and that the book was really well written to appeal to boys, aged from about seven to ten. The language of gaming and the fart jokes would appeal to a lot of boy readers I know.
