trudy_cover_v3Two tiny “spring peepers” regularly and loudly disrupting the Curtis’s family dinners as they called to each other for hours on end served as the impetus for this heartwarming and humorous tale. The amphibious Trudy is happy sleeping in a bark-covered tree. Content that is, until one wide leap lands the little treefrog on a young girl’s bedroom windowsill. There, she spies wondrous sleeping quarters inside and becomes desperate to get out of her scratchy limb bed and onto those fluffy pillows and soft bed inside. The rhyming text and Laura Jacques’ exquisite illustrations combine to create a thrilling and fun story perfect for young readers. Jacques’ artistry inspires awe as she magically captures the emotions of girl and frog.
