Why would you pick up a book about frogs? Nobody likes them, you know.
Frogs are terribly rude creatures! They burp all the time. It’s all you hear from them—burp! Burp! BUUUUURP! Positively beastly!
Um…that isn’t burping. It’s croaking! Frogs croak to find friends and scare rivals.
Did you know that frog croaks can be heard a mile away?
That is a monstrously loud burp!
Actually, different kinds of frogs make different sounds. Not all of them sound like burps! Some sound like peeps. And some sound like whistles!
Hmph! As if it were polite to peep and whistle!
Well, never mind all those dreadful-sounding sounds—what about their unbelievably bad ballet? There’s nothing to like about that.
