A frog sits peacefully on a rock in a meadow, smelling a flower. Suddenly, an umbrella-wielding mouse digs his way out of the ground and for no apparent reason attacks, stealing the frog's flower. The frog gives chase, seizing the mouse's umbrella. All too soon, the hostilities escalate into a full-fledged war. This cautionary tale, though wordless, speaks volumes about the absurdity of aggression and the inevitable consequences of violence. Full color.
Through pictures, the author has created a book to impress upon children the senselessness of fighting.
