Where are duck-billed platypuses meant to sit? And Kookaburras and hippopotamuses and all the other animals with impossible to rhyme with names... Over to you Frog! The laughter never ends with Oi Frog and Friends Praise for Oi Frog!: 'An absolute treat.' - Daily Mail 'Everyone will love it.' - Guardian Oi Frog and Friends is a Top Ten Bestselling series.

Oi Duck-billed Platypus! Press Reviews

Using the strange names and often stranger appearance of animals, this funny, rhyming, read-aloud picture book, will amuse both children and parents and perhaps inspired a few poets in the making. - The Irish Catholic

The jaunty, brightly coloured illustrations make this a joy to share with both toddlers and older children. - The Irish Independent

The latest book in the Oi Frog! series sees the return of our favourite characters who are cheeky, adorable and ever so clever. Kes Gray and Jim Field's creation is more than a fantastically funny story - it's a book that will encourage talk, play, rhyme and laughter for everyone in the family. Younger readers will love hearing the story and older ones will enjoy the challenge of trickier vocabulary in the book. - BookTrust

Laugh-aloud humour which will have young readers in fits of giggles - and improve their rhyming ability, too. It's the perfect follow-up, extending the clever idea to perfection. - Parents in Touch
