It’s a new day at Sittingbottom school and FROG is looking for a place to sit, but CAT has other ideas and DOG is doing as he’s told. Little do any of them know that chaos is coming… who knew there were so many rhyming rules and what will happen when FROG is in charge?

Author Kes Gray says, “Just when we thought we knew where we were heading, Oi takes a leap in an entirely new direction! Working with Kenny and his outstanding creative team is a dream come true. Jim and I have already booked our front row seats and can’t wait to see where this new adventure will take us.”
