Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two best friends, a minnow and a tadpole, are practically inseparable until the tadpole grows legs and decides to explore the world beyond the pond. When the tadpole, now a frog, returns to tell his friend of the extraordinary things he’s seen, the minnow, now a fish, tries to follow in his footsteps, but quickly finds that land is not what he expected. Friendship truly saves the day in this imaginative tale of a fish out of water.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

A tadpole and a minnow are underwater friends, but the tadpole grows legs and explores the world beyond the pond and then returns to tell his fish friend about the new creatures he sees. The fish imagines these creatures as bird-fish and people-fish and cow-fish and is eager to join them.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Illus. in full color. A modern fable of a minnow who wants to follow his tadpole friend--who becomes a frog--onto land.
