Synopsis

Froggy Went a Hopping by Alan Durant

Spirals is the next step up from ZigZag and introduces children to longer stories. Each title tells an exciting tale, with illustrations. Very new readers might tackle a chapter at a time, while more independent readers would be happy to read a complete story in one sitting. Froggy is one hoppy frog! In fact, he's so hoppy he wants to share the feeling with the whole wide world. But what's this? No-one else wants to be hoppy? Poor Froggy! Until, that is, he meets one special person...
