With over 7,000 known species, frogs display a stunning array of forms and behaviors. A single gram of the toxin produced by the skin of the golden poison dart frog can kill 100,000 people. Male Darwin frogs carry their tadpoles in their vocal sacs for sixty days before coughing them out into the world. The wood frogs of North America freeze every winter, reanimating in the spring from the glucose and urea that prevent cell collapse. --Publisher

In the same vein as Book of Beetles and Book of Eggs (I'm not sure which came first), Book of Frogs gives actual-size images of thousands of Frog species. While blown up pictures of small species and cut down pictures of huge species that accompany these are a little distracting, there are some beautiful species in this book, and some weird-looking ones. A must for animal lovers everywhere especially those interested in frogs.
