About the Book



When a pig visits a frog pond, sits on a rock, and says only "Ribbit!," news spreads fast but only the wise old beetle has an explanation, in this warm, funny, and beautifully illustrated story of friendship. Full color.



Book Synopsis



A group of frogs are living happily in a peaceful pond, until they discover a surprise visitor: a little pink pig. Sitting contentedly on a rock in the middle of their pond, the pig opens his mouth and says: RIBBIT! The frogs are bewildered at first, and then a bit annoyed--What did that little pig just say?, Does he think he's a frog?, Is he making fun of us?

Soon the pig draws the attention of all the nearby animals; everyone is curious to know what he wants! After much guessing (and shouting) and a visit to the wise old beetle, the animals realize that perhaps the pig was not there to mock them afterall--maybe he just wanted to make new friends! But is it too late? This is a warm, funny, and beautifully illustrated story of friendship, with boisterous RIBBIT!s throughout--perfect for reading aloud.
