Tales of Mossycup Wood, Frogbit and the Big Gloop,
Gently winding its way around one side of Mossycup Wood is Mossycup Brook. It babbles and chuckles into Poggle Pool. On the banks are some large and rather wayward willows; Frogbit’s nest dangles on one of them.
Frogbit loves his pool because there are always oodles important things to do and fun stuff. He loves the wibbly wobbly of it all.
On this particular day when Frogbit’s tummy decides it’s time to catch supper, he fetches his beautiful fishing reed. It’s spring and his beloved pool is so clogged up with frogspawn he can’t fish from the bank as usual, so he gets his boat out.
But it’s a real pickle trying to free his boat from the very gloopy mess! And not only is he being watched by many beady tadpoley eyes, but he catches the attention of a very grumpy pike lurking in the depths of his pool ready to snaffle an unsuspecting Pogglewitt.
Will he catch his supper and have enough to share with his friends or will he become supper?
Frogbit and the Big Gloop is a beautifully illustrated book that captures the imagination and ensures the engagement of the very young. It is packed full of little details to prompt conversation and discussion between reader and child, and the tale is gentle in nature and full of humour with interesting and playful words. A reminder of the lighter side of life, it will appeal to both parents and children aged 4 – 7 years old.
Enjoy the magic of Frogbit and the Big Gloop, and help him sing to the minnow and catch enough supper to share with his friends Spiderwort and Butterfly-pea.
Merry minnows, merry minnow playing in my pool,
Merry minnow, merry minnows swimming in a shoal,
Merry minnow, merry minnows listen to my song…..
