A nice story about a little frog named Alice who dreamed of some of life's bigger things beyond the comfort and safety of her small pond that she knew all too well. As the title states this frog had her sights on the sea, a far bigger body of water than her pond, but it would take an adventure unlike any she had ever traveled to get to the sea. Overall the story is pretty good, but the illustrations are even better as they fill the pages. ~The Librarian Uncle
I really like the style of the illustrations, but there are several places where they don't seem to reflect the text well. The lines of the "weathered" castle are far too crisp, for example. The markers for the seasons seem not quite right to me. I guess I would say that the images are stylish, but not evocative.

Cute little story. I am happy to tell you it's magical and the frog's name is Alice.
Yeah...I know it's a kids book, but I read it to my five year old son who is into frogs, turtles, any anything reptilian and he loved it. For anyone who has ever wanted to travel or move and once you finally got there, longed to be back home...only to want to go back after you were satisfied that home would always be there for you.

The illustrations drew me to this book. They are beautiful: clear and spare, powerfully spotlighting the frog and her journey. I also loved that the frog was female. The last sentence, however, was ominous and left the ending flat.
This book had an aura of mystery in it: from the crisp and almost Japanese-style illustrations (think Hokusai) to the mysterious disappearance. Love that this book didn't feel the need to really explain everything. Things just happened.

This book is full of fantasy and adventure as well as humor. It shows the students that it is great to see new places and meet new people.
