The celebrated duo behind Big Bear and Little Bear is back with a charming new character: a small frog who just wants to be heard.
Bee Frog is not a frog — she’s a dragon! A not-nice, very fierce dragon! But Mom and Dad Frog are too busy to notice. They don’t even pay attention when Bee Frog hops off to practice her dragon noises all by herself. Is it possible that a scary dragon like her could get lonely? The acclaimed team of Martin Waddell and Barbara Firth (who brought us CAN'T YOU SLEEP LITTLE BEAR?) returns with a gentle tale of a little frog who learns that being yourself can bring the warmest rewards.
Barbara Firth began drawing when she was three years old. Since then, she has illustrated numerous award-winning picture books, including the Big Bear and Little Bear series, written by Martin Waddell. She lives in Middlesex, England.
