Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    Leda and the Frogs?

    (I’m trying to work out which Springfield resident would have used the word ‘droll’: probably Monty Burns.)

    Speaking of drollery, why am I not surprised that hybrid human/frog feet are hard to draw too?

    The fairy in the lower right is surely thinking, “Christ, what an asshole!”

    I find it highly unreasonable no one has drawn nipples on the bat winged hybrid.

    These guys wrote a great deal together, mostly comedic romps involving literary works, but you didn’t need to know that to enjoy them. “Droll” doesn’t sound like a good description of fast-moving Quest adventure stories.

    I don’t recall any non-papillial men with frog hybrids in their other work. I haven’t read this one, but I doubt that’s likely here.

    Looks like they just slapped a fantasy-looking cover on it. It takes place in Faerie Land, so I am not ruling out the unimpressed fairy about to exit stage left being a later addition.

    Only after looking at it and the larger version and googling and written this have I realized he seems to be attacked by a conjoined twin waterfowl.

    The original cover is goofy, and the current one by you-know-which publisher seems to have lost Pratt’s name.

    @Tat: Bravo and GSS.

    Frog pox strikes even the hybrids.

    This is what happens when you lick toads.

    This is what happens when you eat “special” brownies whilst reading the 70’s Frog and Toad kids books… and licking toads (@FB: you are warped and I like it!)

    Seriously tho, after looking up the reviews, I’d read it.
