Leap Frog



by Jane Clarke
illustration by Britta Teckentrup


What’s that noise? The jungle can be a scary place for a tiny tree frog like Felix, 
and all the strange noises are making him a little bit jumpy. Help Felix find a safe place — 
and perhaps a special someone — so he can nod off for a peaceful sleep. -- Candlewick Press
