The Lovereading4Kids comment

In his first picture book, author and artist Algy Craig Hall has crafted a gentle, charming, and witty story that shows exactly what it means to be a good big brother. Thoroughly delightful illustrations - many featuring a deluge of tiny frogs leaping, dancing, somersaulting, and flying across the page - add to the joy.

Synopsis

Fine As We Are by Algy Hall

Then some strange things began to happen: blobs of black spots appeared in the water, which grew squiggly tails and started swimming. Before too long it’s very clear: mum has a multitude of new frog babies. How will Little Frog ever cope?
