Overview

Louis's Scottish uncle brings him the birthday gift of a tadpole, plucked right out of Loch Ness. But it soon becomes clear that this "tadpole" is not turning into an ordinary frog! It'll take a little help from friends and a lot of ingenuity to feed and shelter this unusual, ever-growing pet.

The Mysterious Tadpole, with its giddy mix of fantasy, adventure, and high humor, is one of Steven Kellogg's most popular books. It was an ALA Notable, an IRA-CBC Children's Choice, and won the Irma Simonton Black Award. For its anniversary, Steven has reworked aspects of the story and has created entirely new artwork in the bright, bold colors that weren't reproducible twenty-five years ago. He discusses why he wanted to revise the book in a lively author's note.

It soon becomes clear that Louis's pet tadpole is not turning into an ordinary frog.

    A must have for your home

    I'm embarrassed that I've never read any of Steven Kellogg's books up until a week ago. I noticed the cover as I was searching for library books to borrow and I thought it was a very nicely illustrated book. I read it to my daughter and she just loves it and asks me to read it to her continuously. I plan on purchasing my own hardcover version as I feel it would compliment the books in my daughter's own private ever-growing library. It's definitely a must have and I can almost guarantee that your child will love it.

    Still one of my favorites 25 years later

    I received this book as a child and it was one of my favorites. 25 years later, I still remember the story and it is still one of my favorites. The illustrations are wonderful.
