Description


A singing frog reluctantly babysits a duck egg in this sweetly hilarious picture book from the brilliant mind that brought you The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

While egg-sitting for his friend Kack Kack the duck, Bently Hopperton the frog is so bored that he cannot resist painting the egg’s shell. But when the decorated egg is mistaken for an Easter egg and is egg-napped, Bently discovers that he has in fact, grown terrifically fond of that ole egg. Can he rescue the egg before it’s too late?

An homage to fatherhood, and the appreciation of swell art.
