Frog Goes to Dinner: 12/17/09
Frog Goes to Dinner is the follow up to Frog on His Own. Like all the Boy, Dog and Frog books, it's a picture book. This time the Boy and his parents go to a hotel for a fancy dinner.
The Boy though decides it would be a good idea to bring along Frog in his pocket. Frog once again sees his chance to make his escape. Frog gets into a number of misadventures that upset the restaurant and ultimately get the Boy and his family kicked out of the restaurant.
Interestingly though the parents let the Boy keep the Frog. They are angry and they scold the Boy but the Frog stays. Was the meal really that boring? Or do they know the Boy will get another Frog? How does their inaction reflect on their parenting skills or on the family dynamic as a whole?
