Foo the Flying Frog of Washtub Pond (Picture Book)



Released February 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Sue-Lin Salamander, Mao-Mao Mudpuppy, and Foo Frog have grown up together and been best friends for a long time. But as the residents of Washtub Pond mature, Foo Frog grows bigger than his friends. Soon Foo Frog has a very big head and becomes very boastful. All that changes one day when Foo, puffed up with his own importance, embarks on a very unexpected odyssey.

After some hair-raising adventures, he returns to Washtub Pond with a new understanding of his place in the world. He may be a big frog in this small pond, but he is also a very small frog in the larger "pond" away from his friends.

Belle Yang 's amusing fable has a moral that readers of any age will be able to fathom.
