The swamp, also known as frogpond with an e, seems like a perfect place for the roly-poly frog, Gilbert, to spend his days. After all, he has plenty of juicy bugs to eat all day. When he fills his stomach to the bursting point, he can lounge around and sleep the rest of the day away.
When two gourmet cooks show up to Gilbert's swamp, his world is turned upside down. Too huge to outrun the chefs who want to cut him up and squeeze him into sausage, Gilbert must outwit them by convincing them that bugs, not frogs are the latest exotic cuisine.
The frolicking rhymes combined with the whimsical illustrations promise to make children and adults instant fans the lovable and witty Gilbert. The dinner guest you will want to return to your house time and time again, Gilbert's wild antics make time fun. A definite recommended read-a-loud picture book that will make bedtime an all out laugh fest.
