The Clever Toad
by Danny Wilson
The Clever Toad is a story about the power of determination and love.
Thomas Find, a toad, has known Princess Tina, a frog, his whole life. The two grew up together and fell in love. But Tinas father, the King, does not approve of Tina marrying a toad, even if he is a well-respected, hard-working toad like Thomas. So the King chooses two frog suitors for his daughter. Thomas refuses to give up his true love though, so he seeks a way to win her hand. When he comes across an old marriage law, he thinks he just may have a chance, but it will take careful planning and a bit of creativity. Thomas is willing to try anything though, and so the king agrees to a race for his daughters hand in marriage, and Thomas must prove his worth.
