Parables from the Pond

The Kingdom of Frogdom is part of a strange parallel universe, where the frogs think and act like we do. Their leader is a fearless warrior-priest: the Reverend Doctor Hugh John Green.

The rats are the evil villains in this universe, and when they attack innocent, harmless little creatures, Hugh John and his great bullfrog army – the Webguard – come to the rescue.

As well as being a powerful warrior Hugh is a dedicated teacher, and he tells the other frogs parables that have profound and important meanings.

“Parables from the Pond” combines vivid blow-by-blow accounts of battles between the rats and the Webguard with the deeply meaningful stories that Hugh tells.

    This is a book to read to children, show the great illustrations, and share, in the long tradition of story telling. Each chapter is a window into “Frogdom”, and can stand on it’s own, making the book a wonderful serial telling, over several days or weeks. You will love the inventive names for various characters. Having befriended amphibians, and watched their behavior, it is fun to see the origins of imagination, in these wonderful stories!

    Not since the days of K. Grahame nor more recently of A.A. Milne has such an endearing book been produced for all those aged 3 years and up. Lionel Fanthorpe & Patricia Fanthorpe have provided a radiant text that not only gently ushers children toward reading but will endlessly amuse them too. Engagingly illustrated by New Englander Rick A. Seidita we witness here the adventures in an around The Pond of a nation of frogs and their allies v. Wise Old Rat and his surly lot, plus confederate space-rats even. Nevertheless Frogdom always wins hands (make that webs!) down. After all they are led by that doughty amphibian of the cloth the never to be outdone: Hugh John Green (huge and green, geddit?). At length Frogdom’s collective ingenuity comes up trumps yet again so diverting its erstwhile enemies toward a rodent paradise. An armistice is swiftly ratified leaving peace and tranquillity to reign supreme over The Pond and beyond.

    Charming and educational…A story for the young, and the young at heart. Well written, and entering.
