The Tale of the Valiant Ninja Frog

By Alastair Chisholm
Illustrated by Jez Tuya

Sometimes being small means you can be the biggest hero of all!

Jamie and Abby are camping with Dad and they tell a bedtime story together. This story will star their favourites: a prince, a witch, a thief and some bears. "And the frog!" says Abby. This time there's a terrible giant who's stolen all the keys to the kingdom. No one can get into their homes! No one can start their horses! It's a real mess. Our heroes must sneak into the giant's castle and retrieve the keys. But when it comes to the crunch, only a tiny froggy hero, who's also a NINJA, can defeat the mighty giant! A story within a story that celebrates family time together.

  • Starring a father and a brother and sister who create a story together, this is the perfect book to share with Dad and to inspire parents and children to embark on their very own storytelling adventures.
  • Being small can be mighty – a message that all younger siblings in particular will love. Abby fights for the small frog's place in the story!
  • With hilarious twists on every page and bold, bright artwork packed with comical details, this story will keep children laughing until the very end.
