How do you tell a frog from a toad? In this cosy story rooted in the real world, Alice and Jago find out when they try to collect frogs – or are they toads?
This is a story told by a master storyteller and feels absolutely real and true to life. There are no pyrotechnics, no fantasy (except for the imagined voice of the Chief Toad) – this is something any child could experience. And maybe having read this story they will go looking for toads (or frogs). Bringing the words to vivid life, are the illustrations by Sam Usher. His frogs leap off the page; his toads, evincing suitable disgust at being confused with frogs, sink into the mud; Alice and Jago are real children. Delightful.
