Two Frogs in Trouble: Based on a Fable Told by Paramahansa Yogananda
This story is indeed, in the words of the back cover, an old fable. It is well told here. Two frogs land in a pail of milk. Big Frog eventually gives up trying and drowns. Little Frog goes on, proclaiming While there is life, there's hope. Eventually the milk turns to cream and then to butter, and he can jump free. Simple colored illustrations in a twenty-eight page pamphlet. Among the best illustrations are the view from above when the frogs are first swimming in the milk (also pictured on the back cover), the I can't swim another stroke illustration for Little Frog, and the facing pictures of the leap to and celebration of freedom. Yogananda died in 1952.
