Book Launch & Signing: The Frog and his Dancing Shoes by Tolulope Ogunmefun

  • New Beacon Books 76 Stroud Green Road London, England, N4 3EN United Kingdom (map)

Tolulope Ogunmefun is known all over the world by his online social media name “Don’t Jealous Me”. He launched his YouTube channel in 2008 and it has been viewed over 41 million times. He has been entertaining fans for over a decade, both young and old, with hilarious comedy sketches and vlogs. 

Inspired by what many parents told him about how he made their children so happy and also by the birth of his own daughter, he decided he wanted to do something for his younger fans – write a children’s book! A book which was entertaining but also taught young children good morals. This lead to him writing The Frog and his Dancing Shoes and there are limited copies available NOW for you to buy for a young loved one this Christmas! 

The Frog and his Dancing Shoes is a 40 page picture book about a frog who has a special talent for dancing and entertaining his friends with his dancing shoes. One friend is jealous and plans a sneaky trick to take the shoes away from the frog. Through patience and kindness, the frog teaches his friends the importance of recognising and celebrating talents in this cheerful story about sharing, forgiveness and friendship.

Join the Frog in the park as he twirls and dances his way into your heart with valuable lessons about jealousy, the dangers of taking things that don’t belong to you and why helping others is fun and uplifting.

Tolu will be launching his book at the world-famous New Beacon Books and he would love to you to bring your young children to take pictures and get signed copies of the book.
