It’s frogs versus scorpions in this new series by professional football player Trevor Pryce. For years, the frogs of the Amphibilands have lived in safety—protected by an elite group of poisonous frogs named the Kulipari and by the dreamcasting spell of the turtle king that cloaks their lands in mystery. Now the spell is threatened by the Spider Queen, a talented spellcaster, and Lord Marmoo, leader of the scorpions. With the Kulipari off training in secret, the Amphibilands have never been so vulnerable. Enter Darel, a young frog who dreams of joining the Kulipari, despite his utter lack of poison and limited fighting skills. With the help of a motley crew of friends, Darel has the chance to become the warrior of his dreams.
Cool animals, thrilling action, and a bit of natural science—this novel, illustrated in full color by acclaimed comics artist Sanford Greene, is sure to be a major hit with boys.

Praise for An Army of Frogs
"This little frog should find fans among readers of the Warriors and Redwall sagas."
Kirkus Reviews

"Pryce builds tension as the frogs figure out how to deploy their varied skills and reach the ancient turtle king who long ago placed a protective spell over their land. The violent but not overly graphic action is well matched by Greene’s dynamic and plentiful full-color illustrations."

"In this fast-paced tale, Pryce finds just the right balance between brutality and bravery, friendship and betrayal, and loss and discovery. A must-have, winning adventure that is nearly impossible to put down."
School Library Journal

Greene’s color full-page illustrations have the richly saturated look of Marvel comic books, and there’s a superhero feel to the various fighting poses Darel and his pals take."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This clever fantasy series featuring frogs versus scorpions, set in Australia, makes for pleasant reading."

            It was about Frogs fighting Scorpions, and a lot of armies clashing with one another. It was a sci-fi book, and it was ok and funny.

                  This is a wonderful coming of age story. The setting is unique and intriguing. The characters are realistic yet fantastic. The backstory comes in bits and pieces, but this adds to the mysterious tone of the book. A very interesting read that is a nice book to spend a few hours with.

                    Darel wants to be a kulpari but, like most of the frogs in his village, he is a non-poisonous brown wood frog. The kulpari are poisonous frogs who can tap into their poison's power. And, obviously, no poison=no kulpari. Plus, the frogs have a veil that keeps the scorps and the spiders out, so would the amphibilands need kulpari? Well, Jarra, the spider queen is unraveling the veil. It's Darel's time to shine!

                      This book is awesome, and I recommend it to anyone who likes nature. This is about a frog named Darel who wants to be a part of the Kulipari, to follow in his father's footsteps.
