A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2017   In a warm-hearted story with a touch of the ridiculous about it, former Children’s Laureate Quentin Blake tells of a happy friendship based on the success of a dancing frog. Left alone after her sailor husband is lost at sea Gertrude befriends George, a frog with a very special talent. George can dance and soon he and Gertrude are off on tour with George showcasing his amazing performing skills while Gertrude devotes her life to supporting him in his career.  A gentle and tender story about friendship and happiness. ~ Julia Eccleshare

As one of the one of the most recognisable and well-loved author-illustrators in the world, this is a crowning moment for the Little Gems.

High quality cream paper and a special easy to read font ensure a smooth read for all.
