There's a small, hungry frog sitting on the log in the middle of the bog.
He flicks ONE tick off of a stick.
He sees TWO fleas in the reeds.
He spies THREE flies buzzing in the skies.
The frog is feeling pretty fine, but then...
the log in the middle of the bog starts to rise....
What a surprise!

A simple counting rhyme relates the tale of a frog who eats his way through the bog: one tick, two fleas, three flies, and so on.

This rhyming picture book about an amphibian with a big appetite has as much bounce as its titular character's spring-action legs.
