Author Info
Eve Bunting
Born in Ireland, Bunting moved to the United States in 1958 with her husband, Ed, and their three children. She began her career as a writer by taking a writing class at a local junior college. Her first book, THE TWO GIANTS, was published in 1972. In 1976, her book ONE MORE FLIGHT received the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
"The plot, paced more like an easy reader than a picture book, and with a large typeface and ample atmospheric paintings, make this appeal to emerging readers, especially those facing their own feelings of loss and abandonment."
From the Publisher
Annotation There's a frog-jumping contest and Billy hopes that his absent father will return to help him catch a frog and train it for the competition. Even though his father doesn't arrive, Billy is still able to enjoy the contest. Color illustrations accompany the text.
Editors Note Billy is disappointed when his father doesn't show up to help him catch a frog for the frog-jumping competition at school, but the one he and his mother catch wins the championship and Billy begins to accept his father's absence. Jr Lib Guild.
Editors Note 2 It'll take some frog to win the frog-jumping contest at Billy's school. But Billy's all set--he's got a champion jumper, a grandpa with lots of good advice, and a mom and grandma to cheer him on. Everything will be perfect--if only his dad shows up.
