Annotation

Camille and her friend are very different in interests and talents but happily work together to create a frog costume. Unfortunately, there is a disagreement, and Camille leaves. The friend left behind lists the pros and cons of 'being a frog' which also highlights the joys of friendship. The ending of this picture book is very satisfying as the two become friends once again.
