Frog Girl - Owen Paul Lewis 2.5 stars. The story in Frog Girl was a little weird/confusing/disjointed. I had to explain to the children what I thought this story was trying to convey, because it was confusing. A few times my niece remarked, "I don't get it." My nephew wasn't so impressed with the story, either, but boy, those illustrations were just fabulous! At one point he looked at the pictures and breathlessly remarked, "Oh, my gosh!!" They were clearly evocative of Pacific Northwest Native American cultures, and many of the pictures accurately reflect some of the Pacific Northwest Native American artifacts that I've seen in The Burke Museum.
