This delightful new musical follows the adventures of Frog and Toad through four fun-filled seasons collected from Arnold Lobel's classic, award-winning series of children's books. Charming Frog and "worry-wart" Toad leap off Lobel's pages, along with Snail, Mouse, and the rest of the animal gang, for some kite-flying, sled-racing and cookie-munching. Each amphibian anecdote comes to life with hilarious and heart-warming songs using jazzy 30's style music to explore the challenges, rewards, and tenderness of friendship. A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD gloriously celebrates that having a very best friend is about as good as life gets. And, having a friend who is different than you makes that friendship even more special. After all, if each of us is exactly alike, one of us is unnecessary.
