Woo-woo! the wind blew in the trees. Squeak-squeak! went the lanterns. And the dark was all around.

After a long winter sleep, Frog can't wait to get back to his pond. But just before jumping into the water, something startles him-then sends him running back to the woods. A HUGE Pond Monster with enormous claws!

Will Frog ever get a chance to swim in his pond again? And will he and his friends figure out who the Pond Monster really is?

With a vibrant text and atmospheric artwork, this book illustrates perfectly how some things are not as scary as they seem.

There he nearly runs into a huge, black Pond Monster (which even the youngest listener will be able to recognize as Frog’s shadow), and Frog hops away as fast as he can.
