Can Gilbert de la Frogponde talk his way out of becoming a fancy dinner?
In the swamp lives a fat and sassy frog named Gilbert de la Frogponde. Gilbert spends his days catching flies and lazily dozing on the dock until one day, two gourmet chefs arrive at the pond in search of dinner. Too fat to outrun them, Gilbert must outsmart them by convincing them that bugs, not frogs, are all the rage in the most stylish restaurants. Only Gilbert de la Frogponde could possibly talk himself out of such a jam!
