Illustrated by Max Velthuijs

Part of the Frog series

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Frog is taken by surprise when winter comes. He doesn't understand why everything is covered with white and he skids and slips on the icy pond.

He is too cold to take part in any of the joyous fun that Duck is having skating or that Hare is having throwing snowballs.

The animals band together to equip Frog for enjoying winter, and later they share in his rejoicing when spring arrives.

Review by

In this touching story, Frog's friends fail to see how he is suffering in the cold winter until it's almost too late. Fortunately, Duck, Pig and Hare are able to rally round and help him in time.I actually like the English translation better than the original Dutch because the translator choose to use the phrase "bare frog" instead of "naked frog". It just made it more poignant.Read it to an almost 3 year old who loved it.
