Cedric Simon is different from the other tadpoles in the stagnant pool which he calls home. Driven by the burning question “Why?” he chases a bubble to the surface of the pool and realizes there is a greater world beyond.
At long last emerging from the water as a small frog, Cedric sets out on a quest to catch a star which beckons him from the night sky. Surely the star will lead him to the edge of this new world, beyond which the Great One in the Sky might be found, and all his questions answered.
When disillusionment finally sets in, Cedric angrily discards his childish dreams and gets on with his life as an ordinary frog in an ordinary pool. Little does he know that the astonishing answer to his question is continually waiting to be revealed.
Written in rhyming couplets, the fully illustrated allegory of Cedric Simon's life contains a joyful and eternal message for both adults and children.Youtube
