This book was stupid. The only clever part was having the frog surf the waves on her lily pad at the end, otherwise it was a total flop. The art wasn't great. The story made no sense. How did the moon transport the frog from sea to pond and back again? What was in the vial from the random fisherman? Was the frog actually taking to the fisherman, or just thinking of a reply? These aren't the sort of questions I should be asking at the end of a children's book.
This book is adorable. The art is colorful, easy on the eyes, and very clever. Bridget is quite the artist! I liked this book so much that I bought it AND I bought a beret for my 2-year-old to wear while she reads (and colors). It's a good, original story with a nice lesson.
