Author Scottie debuts into the literary world with the release of “The Wide Mouthed Frog” (published by Balboa Press AU). This fascinating story will delight children and encourage them to unleash their imagination.

The wide-mouthed frog one day decides to embark on an adventure. He ventures out of his pond to meet and greet the different animals that surround his world. His expedition lets him meet the milk cow, the ewe, the farmer’s dog, the cat, the mouse and the snake. With its catchy rhythm and rhyme, likeable characters, this book takes readers on a journey they will never forget where they will learn all about the different animals and their unique abilities. They will also enjoy the lively illustrations that accompany the engaging narrative.

An excerpt from the book:
Well Hello there my new friend,
How do you do?
I'd like to, if you don't mind,
Introduce myself to you.

“The illustrations and verse are done so that the child can be included in the story trying to work out what the next animal will be from the clues given,” Scottie says. Captivating and entertaining, “The Wide Mouthed Frog” is a delightful treat for young readers.
