Synopsis

Synopsis

Blue-eyed, freckle-faced Wanda is back, and with her comes spring, puddles, and wriggling black tadpoles. Wanda is enchanted. On the way to school one morning, Wanda scoops some tadpoles into her sand pail. When she presents them to her teacher, the teacher agrees to let the class take care of them until they become frogs. But what will happen to the tadpoles once they grow legs and their tails begin to shrink? Wanda is worried. She wants to keep them. When she secretly moves the frogs into her own bedroom at home, Wanda’s family is in for a hilarious host of surprises.

In this charming sequel to Wanda and the Wild Hair, the dynamic author/illustrator team of Barbara Azore and Georgia Graham perform their magic in another joyful adventure of the quirky and mischievous Wanda.
