A group of frogs are living happily in a peaceful pond, until they discover a surprise visitor: a little pink pig. Sitting contentedly on a rock in the middle of their pond, the pig opens his mouth and says: RIBBIT! The frogs are bewildered at first, and then a bit annoyed--"What did that little pig just say?", "Does he think he's a frog ?", "Is he making fun of us?" 

Soon the pig draws the attention of all the nearby animals; everyone is curious to know what he wants! After much guessing (and shouting) and a visit to the wise old beetle, the animals realize that perhaps the pig was not there to mock them afterall--maybe he just wanted to make new friends!  But is it too late?  This is a warm, funny, and beautifully illustrated story of friendship, with boisterous RIBBIT! s throughout--perfect for reading aloud.

Cutest book about friendship this year. Sometimes books with life lessons are over-complicated. Not Ribbit. Cute enough to read with a toddler with enough depth to keep the "big kids"/adults thinking.

Imitation can lead to people being upset, when it shouldn't have to. In this case the pig is looking for friends, and so speaks they way the frogs do. Essentially the pig is learning a new language. The expressions of the animals are priceless.
