Life throws many problems at Frog, and how he works through and eventually resolves them provides thoughtful discussion material for readers. Previous Frog titles include Frog is Frog and Frog and the Stranger. In this new picture book, Frog presents with strange symptoms. He doesn't know if he is happy or sad, and his heart thumps faster than usual. Hare thinks hard, 'just like a real doctor', and proclaims he must be in love. Frog delights in this diagnosis, and decides the lovely white duck is his heart's desire. 'A frog can't be in love with a duck,' announces the pragmatic pig. 'You're green, and she's white.' The graphically simple pictures are inextricably linked with the text throughout, and the conclusion of this delightful story is perfect. 'A frog and a duck... Green and white. Love has no boundaries.'
