The pictures in this book were very bright and colorful and had different variations in the elements of art than other books that I had read.

The illustrator of this children's book did not waste an inch of his page.

The color as said above was high intensity and the colors that were used were very "underwater" type colors, such as teals and blues. The texture

Alice loved this story about a tadpole who wants to be able to jump like his mother. He meets lots of other animals that jump, but he can't jump. Finally, he meets the big bad fish and learns that he has grown big enough to jump away from danger. Very cute story. Alice approved.

Tadpole is anxious for the day when he can jump as high as his mother, as high as the lamb, higher than the bunny, and higher than the grasshopper. Will it be in time to keep him from the Big Bad Fish?
