Shivers is the best Frog and Toad story ever, followed closely by Alone and both stories are in this compilation. Who hasn't enjoyed hearing or telling a scary story just to feel the shivers that are only fun while safely in your own home or snuggled in a sleeping bag?
The best part?
"'Frog' said Toad, 'Did this really happen?'
'Maybe it did and maybe it didn't,' said Frog...
[and later:]
'Frog,' said Toad,'Was that a true story?'
'Maybe it was and maybe it wasn't'"

And finally: "Frog and Toad sat close by the fire. They were scared. Their tea cups shook in their hands.They were having the shivers. It was a good, warm feeling."

And who hasn't needed time alone just to ponder life while a friend tries to (needlessly) help?
These stories are quite enchanting and the illustrations are detailed to the point that my 7 year old would stop me reading in order to point out things he noticed.
