Life for a very near-sighted little frog named Fenton is very frustrating, until Katy Catfish brings him a gift from the slimy swamp bottom--a pair of gold-rimmed spectacles that brings his world into focus. The delightful rhythmic text and bright illustrations bring Fenton and his friends appealingly to life. Full color.
