Hop Jump

written and illustrated by Ellen Stoll Walsh

Betsy the frog is tired of the same old "hop-jump, hop-jump" and devises new ways of moving that are not accepted by all of her friends.

"Hop jump, hop jump. It's always the same."

At first an outcast for the leaps and turns Betsy calls dancing, she eventually inspires the others to try their own moves. But is there a place for both dancing and hopping?

Delightful frogs (made from collages of textured and speckled paper in spattered shades of green, except for the blue Betsy) leap and twirl against crisp white backgrounds.
