Fresh as the first daffodil of spring, here is a story about finding a new home and new friends. A tiny tree frog sees a family put a special apple-shaped birdhouse in his tree. The frog has never seen a bird live in an apple, so he thinks it must be a house for a frog. On a whim, he moves in, then welcomes one curious new visitor after another. Never has life been so exciting! Stunning folk-art illustrations of the natural world by award-winning illustrator Barbara Garrison embellish this springtime charmer, giving it a look as cozy as the frog house itself.
