Everyone knows magic happens when a princess kisses a frog, but why would the smallest and most fearful toad of all want to kiss a not-quite-ordinary girl? What makes Julie special is her love of nature, and her stubborn resolution to find a way to save her pond from being drained and turned into another strip mall. Tad is just a frightened toad with strange dreams, but he is willing to do whatever it takes to save Toadville – journey to a strange city, learn to dance, and even kiss a human girl (yuck!) When these two determined characters meet, magic is bound to happen. Read "The Hop" by Charlene Byars Moranville, it's a fun read for 4th graders and above.
