Frog is feeling mighty bad, mighty sad, and mighty frustrated. He wants to be a singer, but in the forest where Frog lives only birds are allowed to sing. After much practice on his lily pad, one day he says to himself, "I'm tired of holding all this inside me. I want to sing. I can sing, and I'm going to be a singer!" What happens as Frog sets out to achieve his dream surprises everyone, including Frog himself. Full color.
