Frog is Frog
by Max Velthuijs
Age Range: Under_5
Frog wants to fly like his friend Duck but his attempts don’t quite go according to plan and he feels sad and useless when it all goes wrong. Frog then decides that perhaps he can bake beautiful cakes like Pig or read a book like Hare, but this too is a disaster. Finally, it is Hare who gives him some words of wisdom and Frog realises that he should just be content with who he is.
The Frog books by author and illustrator Max Velthuijs have become contemporary classics and the delightful amphibian in his stripy shorts has acquired an international reputation. These books follow the lives of Frog and his friends Duck, Pig, Rat and Hare. The perceptive and beautiful illustrations make these stories popular with young children and are ideal for reading aloud.
