Summary

A group of frogs are living happily in a peaceful pond, until they discover a surprise visitor: a little pink pig. Sitting contentedly on a rock in the middle of their pond, the pig opens his mouth and says: RIBBIT The frogs are bewildered at first, and then a bit annoyed--"What did that little pig just say?," "Does he think he's a frog?," "Is he making fun of us?"

Soon the pig draws the attention of all the nearby animals; everyone is curious to know what he wants After much guessing (and shouting) and a visit to the wise old beetle, the animals realize that perhaps the pig was not there to mock them afterall--maybe he just wanted to make new friends But is it too late? This is a warm, funny, and beautifully illustrated story of friendship, with boisterous RIBBIT s throughout--perfect for reading aloud.
