Hey Frog!

A tropical picture book based on an old African folktale about a frog who drinks all the water, leaving the other animals with drought. All animals invent a trick to recover the water, and the eel is the one to succeed, by tickling the frog. Frog bursts out laughing, spitting all the water out again.

South African artist Piet Grobler has created an African savanna with tremendously sparkling animals. His finely detailed pen- and-ink watercolours are soft yet striking. The story is full of jokes yet meaningful; eventually Frog is allowed to remain in the animal society.
