From Tadpole to Frog

From Tadpole to Frog

by Wendy Pfeffer Illustrated by Holly Keller

Wendy Pfeffer describes the amazing metamorphosis from tiny, jellylike egg to little fishy tadpole to great big bullfrog. Holly Keller has created the archetypal frog pond and we see it through the seasons as the tadpoles grow legs and lungs and eventually hop onto land: bullfrogs at last.

"Well-designed ink drawings washed with soft-toned watercolors stretch across the double-page spreads, showing the action above and below water level... [A]n attractive, general introduction." — Booklist
