About The Book

What could be more fun than sunny days with your friends?
The weather is getting warm and Mister Frog, Mistress Pig, Missy Cat, and Master Dog are looking forward to pleasant days spent in the park, rowing, and tending to their gardens.

Join Tomie dePaola's beloved and classic characters as they learn that it doesn't matter how those carefree days are spent -- as long as you're with your friends!
