An Army of Frogs: A Kulipari Novel by Trevor Pryce, Sanford Greene (Illustrations), 288 pages, read by Angie, on 10/20/2013

Darel is a young wood frog who dreams of being a warrior. He lives in the Amphibilands protected by the Veil from the Scorpions and Spiders in the Outback. The scorpions and spiders have teamed up under the leadership of Queen Jarrah and Lord Marmoo to finally bring down the Veil and control the Amphibilands. Darel and his friend Gee are the first to notice the advancing army and must warn their people and bring help. Darel finally becomes the warrior he has always dreamed as he is put through test after test, always proving his bravery.

I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. Once I started reading it, I really didn’t want to put it down. I thought Darel and Gee were amazing characters. As wood frogs they don’t have the poison and skills of the legendary Kulipari frogs, but they prove those things are unnecessary when you have the heart of a warrior. I think this is going to be a fun series and one kids will really like.
