“This book is hilarious, and I also want to wear it like a cozy, friendly sweater.” (Emily Flake, New Yorker cartoonist and author of That Was Awkward: The Art and Etiquette of the Awkward Hug)
“If you like to laugh, this book is for you. If you like nostalgia, this book is for you. If you want coziness, this book is for you. If you don’t like any of those things, may I recommend a rusty nail to the thigh?" (Johnathan Appel, writer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver)
“Jennie’s book reminds us that while most millennials do not live in a pastoral fairy-tale lily pad, it is always better to approach our 21st-century problems like timeless, whimsical, clothed amphibians: with humor, honesty, and with a generous dose of kindness toward others and ourselves.” (Felipe Torres Medina, writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert)
At home, work, and out in our ever-changing world, we're all just doing our best. In this modern parody, Frog and Toad are here to commiserate and lend some laughter.
Full of wry humor and deep compassion for our modern vulnerabilities, the stories in Frog and Toad Are Doing Their Best perfectly capture the heartwarming authenticity of Lobel’s famous amphibian friends while revealing razor-sharp truths about the world we live in today. Through Frog and Toad, we see the anxieties that are woven throughout our everyday existence, from our well-meaning but often failed attempts at practicing self-care to our struggle to balance the gifts and burdens of technology. Toad ponders a variety of questionable schemes to pay off his credit cards, while Frog spends too much time scrolling through the newsfeed on his phone. But despite their daily frustrations and existential concerns, they know that having a friend to share life’s burdens makes even the darkest days brighter.
