Pokko and the Drum by Matthew Forsythe

Reviewed by Taylor H (Library Staff)

This picture book is hilarious. Pokko is a mischievous little frog who lives in a mushroom with her parents. Her parents often make poor gift-giving decisions (one time they gave her a llama), and this time, they give Pokko a drum. The shenanigans that ensue made me laugh out loud while reading.

The illustrations are also great. The book uses a soft but vibrant color palette. Sometimes you have to look closely, but Forsythe uses the frog family’s eyes to showcase their feelings. We see surprise, mischief, and more. If you are looking for a creative, funny picture book, pick this one up!
