Nine-year-old Phineas William Walsh has an encyclopedic knowledge of the natural world. He knows that if you wet a dog's food with your saliva and he refuses to eat it then he's top dog, and he knows that dolphins can sleep half a brain at a time. What he doesn't know, though, is why his grandfather died, or why waste-of-flesh Lyle always picks on him. Or why his parents can't live together - after all, when other mate-for-life animals have a fight, it's not like one of them just packs his bags and leaves the country. To make it to-infinity worse, he's worried sick about what humans are doing to the planet, and his mother is worried sick about him. But shouldn't everyone be losing sleep over the fact that a quarter of all Earth's mammals are on the Red List of Threatened Species? So, when a White's tree frog ends up in an aquarium in his fourth-grade classroom, it's the last straw, and he and his best friend, Bird, are spurred to action.

    " Terrific book, wonderfully observed psychological manifestations (Finn's eco-anxiety yes but ecology is also very much the deterioration of the relationships around him). Her portrayal of the patient, but on the verge of losing it mother is spot on. Love this book. "

    " cute book. i read it fast. a little too similar to my favorite "extremely loud and incredibly close." "

    " Really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and touching and taught me a lot about the animal kingdom! There were many "laugh out loud" moments. I found it refreshing to read a novel written from the perspective of a young child. "

    " The narrative voice was a bit too forced for my liking, reading like an adult trying to emulate the cuteness of a kid's perceptions, but not quite getting there. After 50 pages I set it aside. "
