A new book by award-winning and beloved author Jane Yolen is a cause for celebration. Here she returns to the natural world, introducing readers to Little Frog, a character for which children will cheer!


It’s Little Frog’s first autumn, and she doesn’t like it one bit. It is not the green world she loves so much, but something scarier and ominous, filled with red and gold and yellow. And noise! WHIRRRRR. CHIRRRR. BAROOOOOOM.

But encouraged by her Mama, who reminds her that “Most things that are scary are just new,” Little Frog bravely sets out into this world. When her courage waivers, she starts to run and soon is lost, miserably lost. She finds her way to Papa Frog and he shows her what Mama Frog means.

This charmer of a story is by multi-award winning author Jane Yolen, author of Owl Moon and the How Do Dinosaurs book series. The wonderful autumn palette and adorable pictures are by newcomer Ellen Shi, who is not afraid of trying something new herself.

Praise for Jane Yolen’s Owl Moon:
“The very best books for not-quite-reading children must be written to charm and astonish the adults who read them aloud . . . Owl Moon does this better than any new children’s book I have seen in a long time.” –New York Times Book Review – Paul Johnson

About the Illustrator

Ellen Shi grew up in the great state of New Jersey and recently graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, majoring in Illustration. She loves color, simple shapes and texture. Ellen is also an avid fan of nature, film, and books. When not drawing or painting, you will probably find her with her nose in a book.


“Vivid autumn foliage is generally considered to be a thing of beauty, but those unfamiliar colors spell danger to a young frog. Yolen doesn’t rush Little Frog’s emotional turnaround. Shi’s inviting mixed-media landscapes make it clear that the amphibian is never in danger…reasoned reactions to her own nervousness hint at ways readers might tackle their own fears.”

—Publisher’s Weekly

 “Rich colors underscore the intensity of Little Frog’s feelings, as the sunlit greens of reeds and lily pads give way to showers of leaves that, in the shadowed woods, glow with autumn reds and golds…a low-key way of introducing the idea of change, in nature or otherwise.”
