MEDIA REVIEWS
Firefly Books is renowned for its incredible photography and this one belongs at the top. Full page images of some very unusual frogs are accompanied with information describing each. They are amazing!... 5 out of 5.-- (11/18/2014)
The format for this title, as with others in the series (birds, insects, sea creatures ...) is to show single, close-up colour photographs of individual species from around the world. They are chosen for their weirdness and bright colours and are all shown against a white background ('cut-outs' in the industry) which makes them more dramatic... The book is for 10 year olds and older, and will be a useful introduction to the group.-- (04/01/2015)
Amazing images of weird birds and frogs appear ready to fly and leap, respectively... (Reviewed with Weird Birds) off the pages of these informative books written by a biologist who is keen to share his fascination with the creatures featured. The crisp photographs display the image on a white background that allows the reader to focus on the striking details of the exotic birds and frogs, while the text points out bizarre and not-so-bizarre facts.-- (12/31/2014)
Weird Frogs examines 58 of the oddest and most colorful members of the frog world. The Vietnamese mossy frog, for example, resembles a clump of moss; all it has to do to hide from predators is to sit still. The strawberry poison dart frog takes a different approach: its brilliant colors let enemies see it plainly -- and avoid it.-- (11/07/2014)
The descriptions include why the frog looks like he does, features they have to defend themselves, where they live and more.--DurhamRegion.com (11/11/2014)
Weird Frogs is a fun and fascinating book for young (and old) naturalists.--North Bay Nipissing News (11/11/2014)
People of all ages like frogs, and what's not to like? They look awesome, sound great and play vital roles in nature. In Weird Frogs Chris Early, the interpretive biologist at the University of Guelph Arboretum, introduces us to "58 odd-looking frogs and the strange ways they have adapted to a special environment." And these beautiful creatures do have some bizarre features... The illustrations in the book are excellent and the captions for each frog contain interesting and fascinating facts about the animal... The descriptions include why the frog looks like he does, features they have to defend themselves, where they live and more. As Earley points out in the Introduction it is important to learn about frogs as many of them are experiencing reductions in their populations due to such things as ..".habitat loss, collecting for the pet trade, pollution, climate change and the introduction of invasive species..." Weird Frogs is a fun and fascinating book for young (and old) naturalists.-- (11/11/2014)
Frogs are extremely important to nature, but are often misunderstood by humans. This clearly photographed book showcases every detail of frogs' appearances. Fifty-eight odd-looking frogs and their strange mannerisms are presented; with fascinating details about their purposes and endangerments.-- (11/04/2014)
