Inhaltsangabe: Do you believe in Bog Babies?
If you don’t, you will!
When two small sisters go fishing in a magic pond, they find something much better than a frog or a newt. They find a Bog Baby. Small and blue, with wings like a dragon, the girls decide to take him home with them and keep him a secret.
But the Bog Baby is a wild thing, and when he gets sick, the girls turn to their mother for help. She teaches them the greatest lesson of all: sometimes if you really love something, you have to let it go.
This magical book about the wonder children feel for the wild creatures around them will appeal to every child’s imagination and love of the outdoors.
