In the land of the flowering wattle, the wallaby grass and the echidna, there once was a great frog. He was the greatest frog in Australia. Now this frog was very thirsty. He was so thirsty that he drank all the water out of the billabongs, out of the clouds, out of the rivers, the lakes and even the ocean. Then, he sat back satisfied. But without water, the other creatures began to suffer. They needed the frog to spit that water back out and fill those rivers and lakes back up again. But the frog would not budge. The wise old Wombat had an idea. He told all of the animals to try to make the frog laugh. If he opened his mouth to guffaw, all the water would flow back where it belonged. So, all the animals tried their best to get that frog to laugh. They told jokes, walked strangely, and even tried tickling. What would make the frog laugh? A wonderful folktale with big, bold bright collage animals to capture the imagination. Ages 4-9 32 pages
