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!

Max Velthuijs was awarded the 2004 Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration.From Publishers Weekly:
Velthuijs's winning amphibian here confronts the perplexities of winter--a bone-numbing season if one lacks the protective feathers of Duck, or the fat of Pig, or the nice warm fur of Hare. Half-frozen and miserable, Frog can only look on while the others enjoy skating or a snowball fight; but when his friends take matters in hand and ensure that he has a blazing fire, hot soup, a cozy new sweater and abundant companionship, he comes to appreciate many of the season's pleasures. Neatly framed oils in a gently droll style admirably suit Velthuijs's low-key plot and characters. His simple, sure lines deftly depict the animals' changing emotions, from Frog's bewilderment, dismay, despair and--eventually--contentment, to his friends' solicitous concern. The story's message is likewise understated but genuine: by pulling together, friends can transform even the bleakest scenario, and the effort proves worthwhile all around. Ages 3-up.
