Hooray! A Long-awaited sequel!
(I feared, in truth, it had no equal.)
Those authors have allayed my fears
And found more funny seats for rears
And each rhyme is made double-aces
By Jim Field’s daft, expressive faces.

Our squished Frog’s found his webby feet
And shown that Cat a different seat,
And now Dog’s asking what becomes
Of a menagerie of bums!
And now Frog’s got the hang of it
We’ll find out where he’d CHOOSE to sit.

A perfect book with top-drawer rhyme.
(I laughed hard at that final line!)

The EPIC sequel to Oi Frog; I pissed myself laughing. Beautifully written, wonderfully drawn...

So, cats sit on gnats, moths sit on cloth, fleas sit on peas and even more bizarre, crazy and stupid ones.

Ten Second Synopsis:
In this thrilling sequel to Oi Frog!, Frog decides to change things up a bit. But what on earth will the animals sit on now?

If you loved the word-twisting, rhyme-busting, sit-a-thon that was Oi Frog!, you will definitely appreciate the humour (and the fairness of the new rules) presented in Oi Dog! Without giving too much away, this is essentially the exact same story as the earlier book, with animals coerced

Frog is fed up with where dog’s seating arrangements and turning the tables on bossy Cat, devises a new seating plan for the animals. Having given up his place on the log for Dog, Frog has to find new seats for everyone, and Cat for one is not happy with his new resting place.

This is wonderful sequel to Oi, Frog! with a whole host of new animals who are having to comply with the hilarious new seating plan devised by a rather fed up Frog. The rhyming couplets lend a lovely flow to the book, makin

Children will love this book; it has bright, colourful pictures and it is also funny. In the story, the frog wants to change the rules of where different animals can sit, as opposed to cats just sitting on mats. The rhyming in this book makes it funnier and also makes it to flow. Children will particularly like the end of the story, which doesn't rhyme unlike the rest of the book, and is regarding where frogs can sit.

One of my daughter's favorite books right now. We have read it over and over and she can almost recite it from memory. Each animal is given a rhyming item to sit on with a surprise at the end.

Although it follows the book Oi Frog you don't have to have read both for this one to be a lot of fun to read.

I read this book to a year 1 class that I was with for placement. The children were all engaged as they had previously read other versions already. The story was about different animals sitting on various objects that rhyme with their animal names. They were anything wild or silly which made some of the children laugh. This occurred on every page of the book.

This book was a great opportunity for phonics as children could pick up graphemes and phonemes that rhyme. This could be useful for a phoni

Some fun wordplay and hilarious illustrations!
Sarah Clarke
A really good book I've found to be particularly for year one pupil. The use of rhyming as the main structure of the book introduces rhyme schemes to the year group. The use of rhyming is also very engaging as the children are more likely to remember the story through understanding of the rhymes for each animal. Consequently it allows them to begin to recognise that the same sounds may have different spellings and vice versa. The use of pictures also adds to the engagement, as it fragments the n ...more

This really fun and exuberantly illustrated picture book is one of a series of three books which provide a great way to use reading to back up phonics lessons and rhyming. A frog, unhappy at being sat upon by a dog, rewrites the rules, introducing a host of animals and the appropriate furniture they should recline upon - which in all cases has to rhyme with their names. Through the pages the rhyming becomes more sophisticated and humorous, and there is much opportunity to engage children's imagi ...more
I discovered this book on a training session at work with an English and reading consultant and had to buy a copy for myself! Already have loads of ideas how I'll use it in school with my lovely class and I'm sure they'll love it too!

The pictures are bright and colourful and the language is great. I can see it introducing lots of new vocabulary to my current class and causing lots of giggles!

I think it would be great for work on rhyming and predicting, particularly at the end and maybe even mak

We read Oi Cat! first and she loved it. I think the difference with that one was the there was more inter-play between the characters as well as the fold-out funny at the end. She hasn't been all that interested in Oi Frog! or Oi Dog! (although Oi Dog! starts to get a bit more character to it). Her favourite part of the book was actually the inner cover looking at the different pictures ofthe dog and giggling at him farting or chewing on slippers.

Well, Oi Frog! ended not so much on a cliffhanger as dropped off a cliff, with poor frog under a dog, following Cat's strictures about socially acceptable seating (this is honestly more profound than it looks) Frog is unhappy about his place in the general scheme of things and instead of merely providing pleasure to Dog by going 'PLURPPPPPPPPPPPPP!' he has something to say about overthrowing the current order. More crazy rhyming ensues, with some poor creature allocated smelly pants and just wai ...more

Frog has had enough of being sat on and decides to change the rules. Instead of sitting on frogs, dogs will sit on logs, cats will sit on gnats, bears will sit on stairs etc. Cat and dog listen to frog as he explains where all the other animals must sit. At the end, dog asks what frogs are going to sit on, he says ‘sun loungers’.

Very humorous book with lots of rhyme and repetition. Can also look at books by same author - Oi Cat, Oi Frog, Quick Quack Quentin.

This book is an excellent read to young children. It is useful book to read to children when learning repetition and also the children will be able to remember some of the words that are repeated throughout. Oi Dog! has lovely illustrations that go perfectly with the words within the book. Definitely recommend!

What a funny and sweet book. A great book to use to introduce rhyme to a class in an amusing way, and something other than rhyming poetry.

Lovely illustrations to accompany the story and a witty ending. Really lovely book.

Lovely clear, bold illustrations. Lots of rhyme and repetition to make it memorable. The three characters come across clearly in this simple little exchange with a fun little twist at the end.

I thought Oi Frog! was funny, but it's all made even better by this wonderful sequel. Full of fun rhymes and pictures that will make both you and whomever you're reading it to (or just yourself for that matter... I love reading them myself) smile and pause to look before the next page.

Another genius book by Gray!
