A Flying Frog who cannot fly? Poor little Plummet thinks he's the only one in the whole wide world. He's so sad about it, he's even lost his smile. And then he meets a fabulous Flying Frog called Be-Bop. Plummet thinks she will never be his friend. Who wants anything to do with a Flying Frog who can't get airborne?
But Plummet's got Be-Bop all wrong. Soon, with her help and understanding, the sky's the limit.
Follow Plummet as he goes from the saddest frog in the world to the smiliest in just 32 pages!
Wonderfully illustrated by Emily Bolam, this is a perfect picture book for inspiring self-belief.

Review quote

?an inspiring story? * School Librarian * ?Late achievers are always appealing and Plummet, the flying frog who can?t seem to learn to fly, is no exception . . . The attractive froggy environment easily carries the message of overcoming failure and finding friendship.? -- Julia Eccleshare * Guardian * "A lovely story about fibs, friendship and why it is always better to tell someone what's bothering you." * Angels & Urchins, Autumn 04 * Plummet is about a flying frog who can't fly. Emily bolam's vibrant illustrations highlight his dismay and concequent loss of sparkle until he learns that his name is misleading and that he is a member of the flying frog race. -- Lindsey Fraser * The Bookseller 15.4.05 *
