Daddy Frog and the Moon
When Frog becomes Daddy Frog he longs to show his little Baby Frog just how much he loves her. As he searches for a present that will express his love, he misses out on special time shared with Baby Frog as she grows into a little frog … until his great leap to try to catch her the moon launches Baby Frog into the leaping she longs to do with her Daddy. They joyfully leap together and Daddy Frog learns that vital truth that he doesn’t need to prove his love for Baby Frog, but just be there for her.
Written by Pippa Goodhart and illustrated by Augusta Kirkwood.

Pippa does lots of school and festival visits, and also teaches adults who want to write for children via Cambridge University’s ICE courses and Jericho Writers. AUGUSTA KIRKWOOD is a recently graduated Scottish illustrator who grew up in the Highlands surrounded by her many siblings and pets.

Drawing from her childhood, Augusta creates illustrations that capture the innocence and playfulness of animal friends, whilst experimenting with character, textures and colours.
