GILBERT DE LA FRONGPONDE: A SWAMP STORY

Gilbert is one fat and sassy lazy frog who sits on the dock all day eating insects. Two chefs are fishing in the swamp when Gibert overhears their desire for frogs legs. His quick wit turns this around.

"I'm sure you've heard of chocolate ants and firefly fondue, of earthworms enchiladas and bedbug barbecue." Of course you haven't. But that's what this whimsical and hilarious book will cook up for you!

It's a real "treat."
