Max Velthuijs was born in The Hague in 1923, and died in 2005, aged 81. He is now considered to be one of Holland's most important creators of children's books, alongside Dick Bruna. He won many awards, including the highly prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 2004.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book… simple but deftly told.
Great story with a happy ending.
A joy to read.
Frog is an inspired creation – a masterpiece of graphic simplicity.
This is one of a series of books about Frog; look out also for Frog Finds a Friend, with the same trademark exploration of the emotional highs and lows with which all small children are familiar.
