City Dog, Country Frog

In spring, City Dog meets Country Frog, who is waiting for a friend. "You'll do," says Country Frog, and he teaches City Dog to play froggy games. In summer, City Dog teaches Country Frog to play doggy games. In the fall, Country Frog is a little tired, so the two friends sit and remember good times. But in the winter, City Dog can't find Country Frog. When it's spring again, another friendship begins, a little differently this time.

The poignant text and expressive watercolours create a lovely meditation on life, friendship, and remembrance that will affect readers of all ages.
