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.
