School Library Journal - 09/01/1999 PreS-Gr 2 Froggy approaches Halloween with the same boundless enthusiasm that he brings to everything else in his life. As usual, though, he goes too far and embarrasses himself. After much deliberation, he decides to dress as the Frog Prince, making himself so cute that Frogilina cannot resist giving him a kiss. Froggy leapfrogs away but somehow finds himself on a front porch with Frogilina falling on top of him. It is enough to make any frog blush. He loses his candy as he jumps home but his mother is ready with his favorite treat chocolate-covered flies. The bright cartoon pictures clearly complement the text. Glee, surprise, happiness, pride, and shame are all flawlessly expressed on the faces of Froggy and his friends. Children will just love this frog, and non-scary Halloween stories are much needed, especially good ones.

Booklist - 09/01/1999 Froggy can't decide what to be for Halloween. Should he be Super Frog or something scarier like Vampire Frog? He finally decides on Frog Prince--his black cape, mom's black tights, a gold crown, and his mighty sword. This turns out to be the scariest costume of all: he looks so smashing that Frogilina chases after him to give her prince a kiss. Although he manages to escape the dreaded smooch, his bad luck continues when he discovers his mighty sword tore a hole in his candy bag and he lost all his treats on the way home. Even so, there's still a happy ending to his Halloween. Froggy's mom has a whole bowl of treats that nobody else seemed to like: chocolate-covered flies--Froggy's favorite. Yum! An enjoyable, light-hearted comedy of errors, cheerfully illustrated with festive Halloween details. (Reviewed September 1, 1999) - Copyright 1999 Booklist.
