Green Wilma, Frog in Space

Arnold, Tedd. Green Wilma, Frog in Space. Dial Books for Young Readers. 2009. ISBN: 9780803726987.

My book is about a spaceship landing on Earth and leaving with a frog instead of their alien child. The aliens thought the frog was ill because he wasn't blue like them. All kinds of crazy things went wrong in the spaceship. They went back to Earth and kicked out the frog and picked up Blooger, their kid. The illustrations are colorful and cartoonish. The pictures are in colored pencils and ink pen. My favorite picture was when the aliens booted Wilma out the door. It was a purple spaceship with yellow lights. The drawings were funny. My favorite part was when they picked up the wrong alien. It was funny when they picked up a green frog instead of a blue alien. I would recommend this book to a 3 year old because they would like the blue aliens, the frog, and the spaceship. The story has cartoonish aliens and a frog taking a dip.
