The author skilfully weaves the tale around the importance of friendship and throws in a pretty good plot to boot. We are taken straight into the story and soon introduced to Pibbin's colorful friends, all of which are well enough described for the reader to imagine them, and their boggy environment, even without the illustrations.
Pibbin displays tremendous courage in the face of danger and finds out he is a much braver frog than he thought, and all because his love for his friend was far greater than his fear of the unknown. A marvelous lesson in courage for children!" ~ Amelia
"What a fun book to read! Beginning and reluctant readers will enjoy this book about a young tree frog and his adventures, trying to get help for his friend." ~Ruth

From the Author
I asked myself, "Could anything so delicate also be brave? What adventures might he have?" The story of a little treefrog named Pibbin began to grow. He'd be small, but he would have a large heart of concern for his friends. As I thought further, I decided that Pibbin's adventures should be easy to read--for all children to enjoy--and I would gather them into a collection: Tales of Friendship Bog.
