A frog, a magic spell book, and one big, angry yellow ball. What could go wrong? Everything in this hilarious early reader comic.

Bee Bop Tiffle Dunk Bam Bog Boo Bop None of the magic spells in Frog's magic spell book will work on the deflated ball he found. Frustrated, Frog kicks the ball and watches as it flies up in the air and gets bigger and bigger and then as it comes back--uh, oh Frog tries to outrun, trick, and hide from the ball in the library but the ball always finds him--even if it means knocking down bookshelves, ruining a puppet show, and sending papers flying everywhere

Author-illustrator Kathy Caple has created a hilarious story for young readers filled with slapstick humor and a healthy dose of be careful what you wish for. With a variety of panel sizes and styles, there is much here for kids to pore over and return to again and again.

I Like to Read Comics are created for kids just learning to read. Sequential art and simple text--and a powerful relationship between the two--are perfect for developing readers.
