From the Inside Flap:

From the author of the "hopaway" hit Once There Was a Bull ... (frog) comes this tale of mouth-watering proportions!

Woven through the western town of Ravenous Gulch, the story leaves a cast of many hopping mad. However, just as things look bleak, transitive and intransitive verbs turn the tables, taking Bullfrog on another adventure.

As Bullfrog's appetite and waistline grow, the townsfolk can't help but gather ... food for Bullfrog. Will Bullfrog hang ... those pictures back up? Will Bullfrog pop ... ?

Only Rick Walton and Chris McAllister will tell as their expertly crafted tale unfolds... (or should we say, pops?)
