The laughter never ends with Oi Frog and friends ...

Don't miss this hilarious follow-up to Oi Frog! and Oi Dog! from the award-winning Kes Gray and Jim Field. A brilliant rhyming read-aloud text, jam-packed with animals and silliness - perfect for children and parents alike. According to Frog ...
Cats sit on gnats,
Dogs sit on logs,
Raccoons sit on macaroons,
Armadillos sit on pillows and
Chicks sit on bricks. But wait! Cat doesn't like sitting on gnats, they keep biting his bottom!
Will Frog and Dog help him change the rules? Can't get enough? Look out for Oi Duck-billed Platypus! , coming out autumn 2018. Praise for the Oi books :
- 'Gigglingly delightful ... a perfect match of words and pictures to entertain again and again ' - Daily Mail Oi Frog! , Oi Dog! and Oi Cat! are a top ten bestselling series. Oi Dog! won the 2017 Laugh Out Loud Picture Book Award and was shortlisted for the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award and the British Book Awards in 2016, amongst others. It also won the Teach Primary New Children's Fiction Award, MadeForMums Award, Bishop's Stortford Picture Book Award, Portsmouth Picture Book Award and The Lollies Picture Book Award.

Leo thoroughly enjoyed this funny follow-up to Oi Frog! and Oi Dog! Each animal has their own special place to sit, but Frog changed the 'rules' and now Cat isn't pleased about having to sit on gnats that keep biting his bottom. The rhyming text and illustrations are brilliantly funny and Leo loves looking at all of the pictures inside the cover, especially the Cat with the cucumber! He loved the lift-up surprise ending too!

The third book of the series and it doesn't disappoint! Again lots of colours and rhyming words and a lovely unexpected surprise at the end...We did have some trouble trying to explain why the whales aren't in pain when there sitting on nails but otherwise great!

After reading oi dog and oi frog we had to buy oi cat and it didn’t disappoint. My daughter thought the cat changing the rules was really funny, she laughed at every page, gnats biting bums is very funny when you’re 4! 
The illustrations like the previous books were hilarious, we spent lots of time just examining the different illustrations. Such a great book with it’s brilliant rhyming text!

More hilarious animal sitting on, rhyming fun...this one explores the relationship between frog, dog and cat with, in my opinion an even funnier ending than the others...! More Kes Gray and Jim Field genius!! Can’t wait for the next instalment, oi duck billed platypus!

A fantastic sequel to the series - great illustrations and super rhymes, encouraging the young children to join in and make up their own. Super silly but lots of fun.

A funny,light hearted book which centres around rhyming words. Me and my 3 year old loves the follow on from Oi Frog and Oi Dog. The ending made us laugh. Brilliant for teaching children about rhyme aswell!

I can honestly say this is one of the most brilliant book series that I've come across! 

Oi Cat was a Christmas present and has been much loved and well read since that day by my husband and I for both of our boys. J has even started to remember some of the rhymes!

The alliteration and rhymes are wonderful and I can honestly say, this has been enjoyed by both young and old!

I think this is our favourite (So far!) of the 'oi!' series. Cat, dog and frog are back for more silly rhymes. My 5 year old spent a long time thinking up silly rhymes of her own afterwards and clearly enjoyed it a lot.

The third book of the Oi series and just as funny as it's predecessors!  Cat's had enough of sitting on gnats, they keep biting his bottom, but frog refuses to change the rules.
Dog pipes up with the idea of not rhyming with cat - to improve cat's chances of an acceptable thing to sit on.  Could cat become kitty or maybe mog?
A fabulous fold our page ends our saga and the illustrations are as funny as ever. 
A total delight - we read the entire trilogy before we'd even had breakfast this morning!

There are 3 books in the "Oi!" series so far, and each is 5 stars and fantastic!! I honestly would say they are essential for every pre-schooler and infant school kids, as they are so brilliant at teaching rhyming. 

Funny, and clever rhymes about animals and what they sit on!

This is a great book for helping children to learn about rhyming words. The pictures are really bright, which allows children to guess what the rhyming word might be. My daughter really likes that she can join in telling the story. We have all the books in this series, and she really enjoys them all.

Yet again, this hilarious rhyming story had us in fits of giggles. My now 6 yr old son has loved the whole of this series and is very proud of the fact that he can now help me to read this when we share it together. In this book, frog is very proud of the fact that he has reorganised the world far more comfortably, for himself at least. However, dog is concerned about the fate of cat. Will he come to regret his concern?

This rhyming series carries on getting funnier & funnier. While the cat looks grumpy on the cover there is a happy ending although unfortunately at someone else's expense! The fun dynamic between cat, frog and dog help frame the joyous rhymes of animals sitting on the silliest things like, alapaca on a cream cracker or a leech on a peach. This is a great read aloud book as well as one that F can happily read to herself.

This is such a fun book, the second one we have read. This time the tables are turned as the frog is in charge. Finding words that rhyme with what cat sits on. My little boy loves these fun rhyming books. The illustrations are great too.

Both my boys love the "Oi" books, and we bought this one remembering how much they'd enjoyed the others. They love the daftness of them, the colourful pictures and
the rhymes. This one has a clever pop up at the back, and has flamingoes, dingoes and aadvarks!

Lots of giggles and oodles of rhymes. All that we’ve come to expect from the ‘oi’ books. A fun new story introducing more rhyming animals and a continuation of the previous books. I found it a bit bland to be honest but the children really enjoyed it. I’d recommend starting with ‘oi frog’ before embarking on this though... it’s pure genius!!!
