Frog "is astonished, one morning, to find the world white and the river frozen. Though Duck tries to teach him to skate and Hare lauds the virtues of jogging, Frog continues to shiver. Still, his sympathetic friends build Frog a fire, tuck him into bed, and ply him with hot soup; and he does make it through to spring. The simple, gracefully told story is nicely extended in the award-winning Dutch artist's beautifully designed compositions....Charming."--Kirkus Reviews.

A mini hardcover of this popular winter story about the evergreen Frog.
One morning, Frog wakes up knowing that something has gone wrong with the world. Everything is completely white, and it is very cold outside. Much too cold for Frog to take part in any of the fun that his friends are having with the ice and snow. It's even too cold for him to enjoy a snowball fight! After all, he is just a bare frog - he has neither fur nor feathers. Eventually the other animals band together to equip Frog with warm clothing and extra firewood. But nothing will really cheer Frog up as much as the arrival of Spring!
