Did you know that there are more than 5000 different kinds of frog in the world? This fascinating picture book begins by briefly explaining what they have in common and then goes on to demonstrate their huge variety, highlighting some of their distinctive characteristics. For example, in South America there are colourful frogs that have deadly poison in their skins to protect them and, elsewhere in the continent, the Darwin’s Frog which takes care of its tadpoles in a pouch in its throat. A book that whets the appetite to find out more.
