Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss adapt this charming Russian fable of two frog sisters, one lazy and the other adventurous. When the braver younger frog leads her older sister into a bucket of milk, will they able to make it out alive? The twangy soundtrack helps set the scene, putting listeners somewhere rural and down-home as Hamilton and Weiss perform with a spirited energy and imagination. A Tale of Two Frogs is a fun and surprising experience for kids, who will learn the value of courage and perseverance.

Summary

In this story from Russia, two frog sisters learn the truth of that old saying, "It ain't over 'til it's over" - or, "The opera isn't over until the fat frog sinks." Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, the team that brought us The Hidden Feast and Noodlehead Stories, put their noodles together to bring us this delightful tale of exploration and perseverance.

Illustrated by Tom Wrenn.

Cute story... Very short.

Only 4 mins long. Otherwise I really liked it. Good performance by the readers. $2 for something I'll only listen to once.
