about this item
Friendship and loss are the focus of this touching picture book written by the talented Mo Willems and stunningly illustrated by award-winning Jon J. Muth. An energetic pup from the city enjoys his first romp in the countryside and meets a new friend, Country Frog. The two enjoy several seasons of good times together before the passing of time brings change. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books for 2010.
In spring, when City Dog runs free in the country for the first time, he spots Country Frog sitting on a rock, waiting for a friend. "You'll do," Frog says, and together they play Country Frog games. In summer, they meet again and play City Dog games. Through the seasons, whenever City Dog visits the country he runs straight for Country Frog's rock. In winter, things change for City Dog and Country Frog. Come spring, friendship blooms again, a little different this time.
Mo Willems' spare, poignant text and Jon J Muth's expressive watercolors team up to present a reflection on the natural course of friendship--and life--that will resonate with readers of all ages.
