Bradley ponders the problem and then has a remarkable idea - he will set out in the bog and beg food from the other animals who live nearby! Luckily, his neighbors are the friendly sort and more than happy to share the snacks they have on hand. The problem is, a frog's idea of a tasty treat may not be the same as those of another animal.
Bradley's first stop is at the house of Miss Mouse. She serves him *gasp* rye crackers and cheddar cheese. Who could ever eat such a revolting dish? Bradley quickly devises an excuse to avoid the dreaded cheese and heads over to bear and hare's place. These two join forces to offer a plate of honey covered carrots. That's not any better than Miss Mouse's offering! Bradley decides not to even ask the cow, after he notices her chomping on grass and clover. Unsuccessful, Bradley returns home with a empty tummy. Imagine his delight to find his log crawling with infestation. He dines on worms, mosquitoes, roaches and fleas.
His food mission unsuccessful, Bradley returns home with a empty tummy. Imagine his delight to find his log crawling with infestation. He gleefully dines on worms, mosquitoes, roaches and fleas. This just goes to show that everyone has their own tastes and what works for one might not work for another.
The illustrations are beautifully done. The animals are drawn quite realistically, but in a most whimsical way.Read more ›
