A young frog (hatched this spring) encounters two toads, who have captured the ghost of a Shungiku flower that withered and died just recently. The spirit yearns for the tropics and so do the two toads. The frog decides to follow them on their journey south. It’s a slice of seasonal life for a frog who experiences everything for the first time. Along the way, the frog has encounters with mice, cats, dogs, trees, persimmons, and other beings. Lessons are learned, and thoughts are exchanged. A meditative road trip, a contemplation on life in general.
Linnea Sterte is one of the most mysterious illustrators in Sweden, but probably one of the absolute best. You may recognize her on Instagram as TurnDeCasette, or from the other book, Peow has published by her called Stages of Rot. Which... we'll get back to in a little bit!
