[When Bullfrogs Croak] sparkles with witty lyrics and sonorous, inviting vocals...Morgan once again demonstrates a pleasing versatility.
-- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
A must have children's record.
--Knight Ridder News Services
Heading a host of top-notch musicians, Morgan vividly shapes each song, including kindred spirit Shel Silverstein's "Unicorn" and Cat Stevens' "Peace Train," with his warm, folk vocals.
With its catchy lyrics and singable tunes, singer-songwriter Zak Morgan's second CD is a hit. Morgan seems to be having fun while he performs, and listeners will do the same...This not-to-be-missed title will be appreciated by children and adults who work with them.
-- School Library Journal, Audio of the Week, 10/13/03
Morgan's trademark wordplay hops right out at you...fine writing and musical sensibilities...fun language and rhythmic rhyming...well worth the wait and will be enjoyed for years to come.
-- Chicago Parent
The music is intelligent, stylish and sweet, satisfying both short attention spans and mature tastes...The writing and arranging are at once both playful and majestic...Such attention to artistic and musical detail is what elevates this disc from must-have to heirloom status, suitable for kids of all ages.
Morgan's real genius is he sings songs instantly relatable to both kids and adults.
Cross Dr. Seuss with Shel Silverstein, toss in a smidgen of a grade school educator, a G-rated stand-up comic and a folk musician, and you'll arrive at Zak Morgan, children's artist. The nationally sought after entertainer performs hundreds of concerts each year at auditoriums, festivals, and theatres.
Zak Morgan's eagerly anticipated second CD, When Bullfrogs Croak, was released in June 2003 and has been nominated for a 2004 GRAMMY Award. Also appearing on the recording are some of the most respected songwriters in the United States, including David Wilcox, Victoria Williams, and Robbie Fulks.
