Robert the Frog

What I have in my heart and soul must find a way out.
That’s the reason for music.

Robert the Frog is a timeless tale about an adventurous young frog who is accidentally swept from his home by a raging river. After a long, dangerous journey he finds himself in a strange new home.

Here he overcomes his fear and sense of loss with the help of a welcoming, friendly farmer, who communicates with him through music.

It is this unexpected connection that gives Robert hope that he will survive in these new surrounds, and that one day he will be able to find his way home.

 

Testimonials

This is a beautifully written, sweet soulful story. Some parts are
laugh out loud, too. There is something harmonious about it,
the characters and the story. The way music is used as both an
expression of joy and a force for healing is really touching and true.

I just want to tell you how much I loved Robert the Frog.
I laughed and cried and was on the edge of my seat! I was
imagining reading it to a classroom of children and seeing the
emotion in their faces. Wonderfully written and a fabulous story
of never giving up.

What a wonderful book you have written. There is so much in it
that is inspiring and encouraging. It reminded me of books I read
as a little girl that also had little animals as the heroes with big
hearts and courage.

I liked the story so very much, it is well-written and I enjoyed the
exciting cliff hangers. I was also picturing how a great animated
film could be made out of the story; any plans? I wish you all the
success with it.

C.K

 

It is a beautifully crafted novel that’s not merely about music, but
is itself musical; the writing flows and pulses with rhythms that
effortlessly carry us on Robert’s strange, deeply moving journey.
I was stilled, marvelling, for some time after finishing it. Like
the greatest fables, we totally identify with the animals and their
journey. Moving and profound.

The book is delightful, well done a thousand times; Robert is such
an endearing character. I only wish I could have it in picture book
form and then I could have it at school in the therapy room.
