My grown children's favorite book when they were learning to read. Such a fun story. Glad to see it back in print.

My daughter and I loved the original version of The Mysterious Tadpole and while on a trip to France found it on a friend's bookshelf in French. We practiced our French with Louis and Alphonse. My daughter's children and I discovered the 25th Anniversary Edition on a visit to the library. The 3 year year old almost has it memorized. It's as much fun reading it today as it was 20 years ago and the new illustrations are delightful! Steven Kellogg is our favorite writer/illustrator! The original version of this book started the love affair.
