Teeny’s world is rocked when her Mama is toad-napped and put into a bucket. Panicky and terrified, the little toad rushes home to enlist the help of her seven big, strong brothers. But when their rescue efforts go awry, landing them in the bucket with Mama, Teeny is the only one left to save her entire family.
“A triumphant reaffirmation of the truth that large hearts can beat in small chests, told in playful verse that gallops along with nary a stumble.” – Kirkus (starred review)
