Illustrated by Tony Piedra, Mackenzie Joy


  • Information


The red-eyed treefrog of the Costa Rican rainforest stars in this colourful, strikingly illustrated countdown book, which is both a captivating read-aloud and an informative resource. Deep in the tropical forest of Costa Rica, ten sticky frog eggs cling to a leaf.

Only nine eggs hatch. Only eight tadpoles wind up in the water below. What will it take to survive the countdown to adulthood and begin the cycle again?

This beautifully designed, vibrant introduction to frog metamorphosis peeks at this animal's habitats and predators as it explores competition and natural selection.

Back matter invites budding naturalists to discover even more treefrog facts, revisit the pages to spot other Costa Rican species and check out a bibliography.
