Frog is not content to be just a plain green frog, he wants to do the things his friends can do. He tries to fly like Duck, to bake cakes like Pig and to read like Hare. But all his attempts are doomed to failure, and Frog is disconsolate, until Hare points out that his friends love him just the way he is. And in any case, he can swim and leap better than any of them! "Frog is an inspired creation - a masterpiece of graphic simplicity". (Guardian).
Frog learns the importance of being himself in this new large format paperback edition.
"Frog is an inspired creation - a masterpiece of graphic simplicity." Guardian "This is one of a series of books about Frog; look out also for Frog Finds a Friend, with the same trademark exploration of the emotional highs and lows with which all small children are familiar." -- Yvonne Coppard Armadillo Magazine
