999 TADPOLES by Ken Kimura and Yasunari Murakami

It’s time to move! 999 bright green tadpoles just won’t fit in one tiny pond. Father goes off to find a new home, but “oh, no!” he’s nabbed off by a hungry hawk. Mother cries, “Hold on!” and a whole string of  tadpoles soars through the air like the tail of a kite. This delightful story with its simple illustrations will charm young and old, alike. Right up until the happy ending, when 999 bright green tadpoles safely find a new – and commodious – home.
