Synopsis

Wendy the Wide-mouthed Frog by Sam Lloyd

This is the traditional tale of the big wide-mouthed frog, but given the Sam Lloyd treatment. Sparkly-mouthed, be-hatted and be-jewelled Wendy reckons she's FAR too good for the jungle she lives in, and goes round rubbishing all the other creatures...until she comes across Sid the Squid, who eats wide-mouthed frogs, that is! With six spreads to build the joke up and use made of the die-cut hole on the opposite side to the puppet mouth, (encouraging parents/children to put their hands through to create a new creature), this latest title takes our puppet books series to a whole new level!
