Ribbit! - Rodrigo Folgueira, Poly Bernatene
by Rodrigo Folgueira
illustrated by Poly Bernatene
Age range: 3 to 6 years old

This sound shouldn't be surprising in a frog's pond... unless it comes from a pig...
Nobody understands what's going on. The frogs are confused. The rest of the animals think it's hilarious. Is the pig making fun of the frogs? Why would a pig want to be a frog?
But the pig only wants to make new friends, even if that means to ribbit in the pond like a frog or tweet on a branch like a bird.
We really enjoyed this story, that is funny and thoughtful at the same time.The pig looks cute and ridiculous in the pond. But this doesn't prevent you to feel he is doing his best effort to connect with the frogs. And when the only thing the frogs do is get suspicious, he just moves forward to the birds. He is stubborn and optimistic in equal parts. He is such a great character!
The illustrations are awesome and add so much to the story.
