Speaking of frogs…

Hi everyone,

From my list of 30 topics by association I narrowed my choices to three words: honeybees, mud, and pond. This morning it’s between mud and pond but I’m under a deadline that I must finish before making a final decision. I’ll do my best to still make it today, but tomorrow for sure.

In the meantime, yesterday’s mail brought the first hard copy of my book out next month, AND THE BULLFROGS SING. I like it very much. It begins:

It is spring.
Time to find a mate.
A male bullfrog sings loud and deep.
rumm rumm rumm.

My thanks to my editor Grace Maccarone, artist Kate Cosgrove, and all the folks at Holiday House. This book will be published May 14 and copies can be ordered now.
