About the Author:

PEGGY PERRY ANDERSON is a former elementary school art teacher who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She has written and illustrated six early readers about Joe the Frog. They include Let's Clean Up, Joe on the Go, To the Tub, Out to LunchTime for Bed, the Babysitter Said, and I Can Help!.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Stories of few words but plenty of action and humor are rare; this froggy folly makes the grade. Young green Joe, a nattily overalled frog, has no intention of hopping to it when his long-legged babysitter makes her title announcement. He foils her at every leapgrabbing on to furniture as she tries to carry him off, pummelling her with pillows, jumping on her headuntil, exasperated, she finally asks him why he won't go to bed: ```Because you didn't say please,' Joe said.'' Joe acquiesces when she does ask, but a funny twist on the final page gives him the last laugh. The text is the story's bare bones, but these three-color ink and wash cartoon frogs, with their elongated splay-toed prehensile legs, and wide mouths are where the hilarity lie. Joe's actions are so exactly rebellious-child like (with a few unique amphibious touches) that kids will cheer his stretchy slapstick struggles and temporary victories.
