It is a comical story following a young boy, Milton, who has a lot on his mind. As hard as he tries, he struggles to get anyone to listen to him - and he has something very important to say! So when Milton loses his beloved frog, Burp, Milton takes matters into his own hands. I love Milton's questions in the book and his inquisitive mind like where he asks "Do all frogs have twenty-three warts like my frog burp?". Aunt Lulu's wedding has everyone in the story busy, too busy for Milton. Eventually when Burp goes missing he ends up starting to turn green, and his tongue goes all sticky until eventually, during the wedding he explodes. Finally everyone understands and Burp is found.
It is wonderfully illustrated as you can see from the pictures which both of my boys really liked. I always feel that books with such good story lines and great pictures will grow with us as my boys grow, and would be perfect for a young reader as well as a bedtime story for a younger child. We loved the quirky comical storyline that this book brings.
