Book Description:

It's hard to be a tiny toad minding your own business on a twig. First a bird pecks at him. . . . Then a bee buzzes. . . . Then a dog barks . . . and so on. And each time the toad is surprised by a buzz or a woof (or the toe of a sneaker!), he hops to a new location farther down the road. With fun sounds, clever rhymes, and an irresistible rhythm, this is the perfect story for sharing one-on-one or in a group.

A HIPPY-HOPPY TOAD, won the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators) Work-in-Progress award for picture book text. A HIPPY-HOPPY TOAD will be released from Schwartz & Wade on March 20, 2018.
