Froggy is going out to dinner with his parents for their anniversary. He's hoping for burgers and flies, but Froggy's mother tells him Chez Yum is a very fancy restaurant. Froggy puts on his best clothes. He even has to wash. At the restaurant, Froggy's mother warns him to "be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table." It's just too much to ask of a lively little frog. Froggy can't help himself, he sucks on ice and sugar, he slurps spaghetti and flies and he flops and sings. When he sees Frogilina, a cute girl frog from his school, across the room, he's so embarrassed he crawls under the table. Then the real fun begins. Full of fun words, Froggy Eats Out brings to life the dreaded fancy dinner that all children can relate to. John McDonough's tongue-twisting narration will have youngsters giggling along with the irrepressible Froggy.

"Jonathan London's lovable character, Froggy, continues to be incorrigible. In this episode his parents (unwisely) take him to a fancy restaurant to celebrate their anniversary. Changing his clothes ( a Froggy hallmark), behaving appropriately, and waiting at the restaurant are almost too much for Froggy's patience. John McDonough takes London's jaunty text and gives voice to its special features. He s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s words just as the frog parents do, shares parenthetical sound effects, and whines with the best. All the while, his voice resonates with a deep, rich tone. Everyone--characters, listener, and narrator --is thrilled when the evening turns out successfully. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
