Highlands Ranch: Former Denver Bronco Trevor Pryce, who helped to lead the team to their Super Bowl victory in 1999, will join us to kick-off Children's Book Week by reading and signing his debut book for young readers An Army of Frogs (Abrams). 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. With cool animals, thrilling action, and a bit of natural science, this novel—co-written with author Joel Naftali, and illustrated in full color by acclaimed comics artist Sanford Greene—is the first in what will certainly be a popular new series for middle grade readers.
