Once there was a Bull...(Frog) is an endearing story of a frog who lost his hop. He looks for it everywhere: under a toad...(stool), behind a dog...(house), and under a hedge...(hog), but it's nowhere to be found. He has a cow...(boy) throw him high in the sky, but he lands in a field of straw...(berries). Thanks to a diamond...(back rattlesnake), he regains his hop.

This fast-paced story is just the right length for two-year-olds, yet has enough humor and clever surprises for eight-year-olds. But everyone will delight in this creative tale. They'll "jump" at the chance to trick adults who aren't wise to the wordplay and picture surprises on each page.

Rick Walton is the author of dozens of books for kids, including his popular books introducing language arts concepts: Why the Banana Split, Herd of Cows Flock of Sheep, and Suddenly Alligator. Rick and his family live in Provo, Utah.
