‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Frog and Duck
by Max Velthuijs
Age Range: Under_5
The famous frog created by Max Velthuijs is hugely popular in his home country of Holland (where he is known as Kikker) but also all across the world. In this simple but effective board book, Frog and Duck enjoy a fun day out, packed with playing, swimming and piggy-back rides. Indeed, Frog is never short of ideas for things that he and Duck can do, until it starts to rain and it’s time to go home. Then Duck has the best idea – ‘Let's be friends forever.’
The Frog books have become contemporary classics and the delightful amphibian in his stripy shorts has acquired an international reputation. The perceptive and beautiful illustrations make these stories popular with children and are ideal for reading aloud.
