"ONE NIGHT IN FROGTOWN" A group of tadpoles are snuggled inside their eggs, ready for bed. But they're having trouble getting to sleep because a certain tadpole named Tad is playing his saxophone, and he keeps on playing, until his bubble goes pop! Suddenly free, he swims off to find the "Faraway Music" he has been hearing.Tad comes across three distinct groups of grownup frogs; the "Blues Frogs", the "Classical Frogs", and the "Rap Frogs". Tad is welcomed as he plays along with each on his saxophone, but he's rejected when he says he likes other kinds of music too. Tad cannot understand their prejudices against other kinds of music played by different color frogs.Heart-broken, Tad goes off in the rain and expresses his feelings of loneliness in a beautiful song called "Alone". The other frogs hear him and start to join in quietly, for they too know what it is like to feel alone. Tad hears them, and points out that they're playing together instead of apart. The frogs all realize they have more in common than they thought they did, and in a unifying moment they come together for the joyous finale number "Frogtown".

Synopsis:

This beautiful picture book/CD is a critically acclaimed musical that features top Northwest talents like Curtis Salgado, Linda Hornbuckle, Devin Phillips, and Andy Stokes in a cultural diversity story told through music.

Paulette E, November 29, 2010 (view all comments by Paulette E)
A MODERN-DAY CLASSIC!! Our whole family LOVES "One Night In Frogtown"! We bought it online at: www.frogtowncentral.com and we have seen it at Powells, New Seasons, Made In Oregon and a bunch of stores throughout Oregon. I highly recommend Frogtown for all ages.

The book is beautiful and the message of celebrating diversity is truly timeless. And WOW IS THE MUSIC GREAT!! The writer Philip Pelletier is also an Emmy-winning composer, and he has created an amazing "musical in a book". Linda Hornbuckle, Andy Stokes, Heather Christie, Shannon Day, Devin Phillips and other great Northwest artists bring alive Pelletier's songs and make this a very special CD/Book combo. Curtis Salgado is particularly evocative as the Narrator of this amphibious tale. There is now a touring stage show of this great book. We can't wait to see the Live Frogtown Show!!

This is an adorable book! It was very popular at Beach Books where I worked in Seaside. The kids and parents loved it; it was easy to see why. A must read.
