Captain Frog and the Talking Dog is a wonderful book for children ages 3-7. Jeremy Croston shows us with hilarious images an intrepid adventure of Captain Frog and his loyal companion, the Talking Dog, in The Great Pie Caper!, where they face Doctor von Kat to rescue a delicious pie. This story is an excellent way to introduce children to reading. The images are attractive and very colorful; it motivates the imagination and gives children the joy of being able to read. The story is very dynamic and the author knows how to generate interest. With a child being the protagonist, young readers will be able to identify with and be motivated to live their adventures, making this book essential for fun reading.
The story is adorable and children will certainly enjoy the action; it’s an adventure expressed in color in a general environment appropriate for younger children. The theme is very easy to follow: finding the freshly baked pie stolen by the villain. Any child could relate to the story, laugh at the situations, enjoy the plot, and above all, have fun with the ending theme. In the last part are the lyrics of the Captain Frog song. Jeremy Croston's creativity is unique because in Captain Frog and the Talking Dog: The Great Pie Caper! he shows how ordinary things become extraordinary in the minds of children. That's why this is a book that children can read over and over again with excitement.
