The Frog Who Lost His Underpants

By Juliette MacIver
Illustrated by Cat Chapman

Every frog is worthwhile, and it is a lucky Froggy who has Ted to tell him so.

Hopping through the jungle, this way, that way. Frog is in a frenzy, scattering the ants. Teddy’s looking too now, this place, that place. Will they ever find those jolly underpants? A great rhyming text about friendship, problem-solving and lost underpants!

  • Brilliant rhythmic text from the mind of one of New Zealand's new authors
  • Watercolour, pen and ink illustrations add to the vibrant and quirky tale
  • “This is a new favourite in our house … This is a real adventure, with very cute illustrations and great rhymes to build the anticipation.” Otago Daily News

About the author

She majored in linguistics at university, took a detour and became a bicycle courier for a year, then went back to university to complete a diploma in teaching English. She taught for five years before quitting and starting a government job, which she left once her first child was born. Juliette has always written little pieces, frequently in rhyme, and has had “write a children’s story” on her List Of Things I Want To Do In My Life for a very long time. Little Witch was her first title with Walker Books, followed by the picture books The Frog Who Lost His Underpants and Yak and Gnu.
