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

Little Frog was living happily with his mum on the pond—just the two of them. 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?

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
