Set in the New Forest, On the Banks of Hatchet Pond features Podge, an ugly old frog with low self-esteem who simply wishes he were different. It’s Dizzy, a beautiful little dragonfly, that he admires from afar. Despite how he feels about himself, when the occasion arises, Podge’s true nature leaps forth. A heart-warming tale to remind us that everyone has something to be proud of.
Val Anne Lee’s expressive and witty rhyme is ideal for reading aloud, and coupled with Simon Chadwick’s fun-filled illustrations this is a great book to promote self-worth and a sense of confidence in who you are. Ideal for pre-school and primary-aged children.
