Little, Brown, 2011. Unpaged. Picture book.
Meet a small toad named Gem who has some dangerous adventures and also some not-so-dangerous adventures, like meeting a lady frog and having lot of tiny frog babies! This is a very short, simple story told through lovely illustrations. Done in Holly Hobbie's delicate watercolors and pen and ink, the pictures have a warm, gentle feel that is very inviting. This is a wonderful little book!
