About this title

Synopsis:

Twins Calverd and Doclad, half starving and abused, escape from their cruel foster parents into the safety of magical Frog Hotel, which slowly rises in the middle of a meadow. In Frog Hotel, they find loving care-and some wonderful surprises. But all is not perfect. Why is the proprietor so nasty to them? Why does the ominous Mystery Man stalk them everywhere? And why, when Mystery Man abducts them, do they see the hotel sink back into the meadow- taking with it their dreams of a new life? Only Frog Hotel holds the answers.

Review:

Oh, where to go, where to hide as we plan our escape pell-mell? Why, just past the meadow and through the fog and there it is--Frog Hotel! Susan Bryant drizzles readers with delicate imagery and concerned prose as she details the circumstances around which a pair of young boys find themselves at Frog Hotel.

Adopted twins, Calverd and Doclad, are living the lives of neglected, mistreated children... and decide to follow a loudly croaking frog down an unfamiliar path. As the mysterious amphibian begins to glow and hop faster, Calverd and Doclad chase it through a haze and stumble upon a twinkling hotel in the middle of a meadow. 

Not willing to question their luck, the twins fall into step with the routines of the establishment and happily complete "chores" to keep the proprietor from turning them out. For the first time since they can remember they have clean clothes, warm meals, and real beds...If only the lurking "Mystery Man" would leave them alone and stop startling them, they could perhaps be invited to stay forever. . .

I enjoyed most everything about this book. It encompasses the perfect amount of whimsy to entice young readers and enough kind-hearted deeds to make any adult smile. Walls they can walk through, and grounds that change to meet the guests' needs highlight the fantasy of the hotel's magic...

Following Bryant down her "weird-wonderful" rabbit hole proves that she knows the heart of a child and appreciates finding inspiration in the mundane. Well-edited, beautifully illustrated, and overall smile-inducing, Frog Hotel receives 4 out of 4 stars from me. Following two boys who've never been hugged before just might plant seeds of thankfulness in the children lucky enough to read this book for themselves.
