The Royal Leap-Frog by Peter Bently and Claire Powell

The Royal Leap-Frog by Peter Bently

Hi All!

Today I am on the Blog Tour for The Royal Leap-Frog and I am here with an extract for you all.

Before I share that though, here’s some information on the book.

Title: The Royal Leap-Frog
Author: Peter Bently
Illustrator: Claire Powell
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Published: 14th April 2022
Source: N/A
Summary: A hilarious tale of rivalry, boasting and custardy chaos from the bestselling creators of The King’s Birthday Suit.

When a flea, a grasshopper and a frog compete to show the King who can jump the highest, it causes CHAOS in the royal dining hall. Who can jump the highest? Can the clever leap-frog use his wits to win?
And will the Emperor’s dog EVER get rid of the flea?

This funny and irresistible retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fable, ‘The Leap Frog’, will make children laugh – AND show them that brains are sometimes better than brawn! With a pitch-perfect rhyming text by bestselling Peter Bently, and gloriously detailed illustrations by award-winning Claire Powell, this is an unmissable treat.
