Freddie is a frog who lives with his parents on Treble Clef Island. He is awakened in the middle of the night by a strange thumping noise. Frog-eating crocodiles, a swinging rope bridge, and a humongous gray monster are all part of Freddie’s adventure as he explores the island in search of the thump.
Through Freddie’s adventures on the island, the reader is
introduced to the treble clef staff as a map of where Freddie
lives. Various lines and spaces represent each part of the story.
Readers are captivated as the staff comes to life with the combination
of illustrations and enclosed CD narration and music. A bonus
of two sing-a-long songs, “Froggie Went A-Courtin”
and “Eli’s Hokey Pokey”, sung by Freddie and
his friend, Eli, are included on the CD.
