Flora is asked to be a frog in the class play, but she is dismayed. Frogs are green and fat, and she is afraid that everyone will laugh at her. When her mother and Aunt Jo make a frog costume for her, Flora promptly throws it up into a tree.All day long she watches the frog's hand, which is hanging off a branch, sway in the breeze. To make matters worse, later that day she lies to her mother that all her friends liked the costume.Flora is troubled by her own behavior and angrily throws her ball over the backyard fence. When she goes to retrieve it, she makes a remarkable discovery. The ball has landed next to a pond where three frogs sit, sparkling with water drops. She watches the frogs and loves how they sparkle and leap. Slowly she realizes that being a frog in the play may not be so bad after all.Shirley Isherwood shows young readers that a little imagination can make anything--even a fat, green frog--special and fun. Illustrator Anna C. Leplar's joyous watercolors bring the appealing characters to life.
