"'Sometimes big stories happen in small places' and big, fun, totally enjoyable tale happens right here in Stinky Cecil in Operation Pond Rescue. Paige Braddock has created a lovable cast of quirky animal pals in a very funny and environmentally friendly adventure. I'm looking forward to the next installment "
--Patrick McDonnell, creator of Mutts

Sometimes big stories happen in small places. Sometimes big things happen to small creatures. This is one of those stories . . .

Cecil is a toad. A toad busy doing what any other toad does with its days--judging the pond splashing contest (Reggie the fly is usually the honorary winner by dint of his five-day lifespan), or visiting his friends, Jeff the free-range hamster, Rayray the lizard, Jeremy the worm, or Sprout the frog. And, of course, trying to keep clear of the local hawk.

But when Cecil discovers a freeway construction project aimed right at the pond, he knows he has to come up with a plan to save his home. But what can a small group of amphibians and a reincarnating fly do against construction vehicles and a steady onslaught of hot asphalt? Cecil isn't sure, but he knows they have to try.
