This author is not one that I tend to enjoy for my own kids, since his books don't really send positive messages. It sounds like this one might do better in that department though. Great review!

This looks like a very entertaining picture book! I'm way past the age to read it though. Thanks for the review and recommendation.

It is a bizarre premise no doubt. I'm sure young readers are going to love it as it is also supported by beautiful illustrations. Glad that you liked the book. Thanks for the review.

Thanks for the review, this sounds like the perfect book to read to my 5-year-old son. He will really appreciate the idea of the frog swimming in the toilet!

Len Foley's children's books are always fun. Can't wait to read this book like you and narrate it to my son when he is of age. Awesome review.

I love Len Foley's books. Great illustrations, funny stories and unforgettable characters. A frog swimming in the toilet sounds like an incident we experienced recently. I'll definitely pick this one for my little ones and I to enjoy.

Funny title! I don't think if I ever seen a children's book like this before. Of all places, that frog chose to swim in a toilet. However, I don't think this book is something I want to read at this moment.

I have always been a fan of Len Foley's works. This book features a happy little frog that hops past barriers and ends up where he fears getting flushed away. It's a really amusing and positive read.

Official Review: I'm Swimming in the Toilet...PLEASE DON'T FLUSH by Len Foley is the skillful description of the sweet story of the book. The readers will find the book lovable and a pleasant surprise for them! The story of a frog's dip in the toilet is relatable to the modern lifestyle and atmosphere of living beings!
