Author Gloria Reppabout this book: Pibbin, smallest of treefrogs, is desperate to help his turtle friend, Sheera, even though he'd have to take a long and dangerous journey to the doctor’s house. The other frogs tell him he’s too small to go. “You'll run into snakes and that giant bullfrog,” they say. “Black Snapping Crabs might eat you.” But Sheera’s leg is still bleeding! Pibbin finds a pal to go with him, and they hurry off. No one knows to warn them about a crazy toad-driver, or stolen leaves, or a terrible, misted swamp. . . . And the two pals end up in more trouble than they ever expected.

Author’s inspiration: One warm spring night in New Jersey, I listened to the Pine Barrens Treefrogs for the first time, and I will never forget their earnest songs: "Wonk-wonk-wonk!" A friend gave me one of the delicate green creatures to hold, and I asked myself, "Is it possible that a creature so small and fragile could also be brave? What adventures might he have?"

I began to imagine stories about a young treefrog named Pibbin. Even though he was small, he'd have a big heart, a heart full of concern for his friends. His adventure stories should be easy to read—for all children to enjoy—and I would gather them into a collection called TALES OF FRIENDSHIP BOG.

~A fast-paced reading adventure for ages 7 and up.
~Color illustrations, map, and on-site photographs of frogs.
~Also available in paperback and as an audiobook.
