Foo, the Flying Frog of Washtub Pondby Belle Yang
Synopses & Reviews
For kids of all sizes (and boasting ability), a funny fable about growing pains, the ups and downs of friendship, and the gift of forgiveness.
In a cozy, tropical place called Washtub Pond, three web-footed creatures pass carefree days playing and dreaming together. Sue-Lin Salamander, Mao-Mao Mudpuppy, and Foo Frog have been best, samesize friends since the day they were born. But like all young creatures, these three grow up — and some really BIG changes in Foo Frog put the trios friendship to the test. With warmth, lighthearted wit, and a bit of hot air, Belle Yang has written and painted a laugh-out-loud story in bold, comedic strokes.
In Washtub Pond, Sue Lin Salamander, Mao Mao Mudpuppy, and Foo the Frog have been friends since they were born. But really big changes in Foo soon put the trio's friendship to the test. Full color.
