The Frog In The Well



Once upon a time there was a frog who lived at the bottom of a well. To the frog, this well where he’d lived all his life was the whole world. Then one day the well runs dry and the bugs disappear, and the hungry frog must hop to the top of the well to see what he can of the end of the world. Conquering his fear, he peers out and what does he see? Trees, flowers, meadows, marshes, and all kinds of end of-the-world creatures! Entranced, the little frog ventures forth to find out more about the world outside his world.

Written and illustrated by the Caldecott-winning Alvin Tresselt and Roger Duvoisin, The Frog in the Well is a classic bildungsroman for children and a charming tale of one brave frog and his journey into wisdom.
