"This beautifully illustrated book brings to life a selection of South Africa's most diverse and fascinating frogs - from the little round Desert Rain Frogs to brightly coloured, chirruping Reed Frogs and large-eyed Tree Frogs. Your family will have fun with counting up to ten, and then down again as the book cleverly makes its way through the day and into the night, following the behaviours of each featured frog. Quintessentially African, the artwork captures the essence of each of the twenty species included in the book, and showcases the diverse landscapes and habitats in which they can be found." Jeanne Tarrant, Endangered Wildlife Trust, from her foreword
