Synopsis

Two Frogs by Christopher Wormell

Two frogs are sitting on a lily pad and one of them has a stick. The stick, he says, is to beat off the dog. But there is no dog- yet. So begin the trials of this hapless pair whose adventures build to a brilliant conclusion. A unique book with all the qualities of a timeless fable.

Reviews

The combination of frog illustrations and witty text works beautifully, so as soon as you finish it you'll find yourself flicking back to enjoy this cautionary tale all over again. -- Evening Standard
