Witty, wonderful, and slyly fun, the song I'm in Love with a Big Blue Frog was a huge hit for Peter, Paul and Mary in 1967, and has been a favorite in classrooms, camps, and at sing-alongs ever since. Not only do children delight in the playful tune, but adults also embrace its lyrics, which gently send a message of tolerance in the most lighthearted, humorous way.
As this one-of-a-kind couple shows, their mix is a happy one and proof that being a little unconventional can be a beautiful thing. Up-and-coming artist Joshua S. Brunet creates an amusing and lively world, filled with an unforgettable cast of characters. An accompanying CD features Peter, Paul and Mary's irresistible recording of the song, perfect for singing along, as well as two other tunes specially recorded for the book: The Froggy Went 'Courtin, sung by Peter Yarrow and Inside, sung by Noel Paul Stookey.
So, who's in love with a big blue frog? YOU will be once you read this entertaining book!
