The first sequel in the Little Frog & the Four Seasons series from Persnickety. Our feisty heroine, Little Frog, is on a new adventure. This time she’s trying to stay a jump, or rather a lily pad, ahead of the spring polliwogs (brothers, sisters, and cousins of hers).
They are SO much trouble and just keep getting in the way. But when that polliwog trouble becomes nothing compared to a real threat—boys with nets!!!—Little Frog has to remember all that she’s been taught in order to save the tadpoles from disaster.
Jane Yolen has authored more than 350 books including the Caldecott-winning Owl Moon, and the New York Times bestselling series How Do Dinosaurs. Jane’s books have been translated into over 20 languages and are popular around the world. Jane wrote On Bird Hill for Persnickety’s sister imprint, the Cornell Lab Publishing Group (Spring 2016) and is now working on the continuing series releasing Spring and Summer 2017 (On Duck Pond and On Gull Beach, respectively).
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
