It's easy to love Arnold Lobel, a born children's book illustrator and creator of the beloved Frog and Toad series. Lobel loved animals particularly as subject matter because they helped with the suspension of disbelief... but there's plenty of hilarious, preposterous human characters to happily disbelieve in this nursery rhyme book too. Not least the portly, wig-wearing protagonist Gregory Griggs.
