Frog Went A-Courtin by: John Langstaff - Caldecott Award Winner
An elaborate and expensive wedding is soon planned after Miss Mouse accepts Frog's marriage propsal. A variety of creatures arrive as guests to the wedding, including the old cat that puts an end to the celebration. This story is an illustrated version on a folk song that was written in Scotland over 400 years ago. I did not care for this story, yet the illustrator used bright and vivid colors which did enhance the book.
