I honestly love Frog and Toad. They’ve been hilarious in previous installments, but reading Frog and Toad All Year really cemented the amphibious duo in my mind as favorite characters. They may be considered “children’s” characters, but honestly, their outlook on life is one which appeals to me most mightily – they are addicted to eating and comfort and the beauty of the small things in life. Take for example, this quip from Toad after Frog takes him out for a series of mishaps during the first snow of winter.
Winter may be beautiful, but bed is much better. [pg. 17]
To which I raise a hearty AMEN.
The chapter in which Toad fetches ice creams for he and Frog is priceless (and seems exactly like something I might do).
Conclusion. The entire Frog and Toad series is gold. :)
