|Leon's Songby Illustrator Dianna BonderFitzhenry and Whiteside, 2004Leon is an old frog. In truth he is not much to look at and he can be a little timid. But Leon is content with his quiet life on the pond. Other frogs are more handsome and can swim faster and leap higher. Leon is all right with that; he loves to watch the others and admire their talents. But when Leon hears Romeo, he heart aches - for Romeo is the greatest singer on the pond. Leonís humble croak is nothing like Romeoís rich tones. More than anything, Leon wishes he could sing. From this, Leon is inspired by the music to dream of a time when he too might make a difference. He isnít going to have wait very long. Something is about to happen that will threaten the pond dwellers and their way of life forever. This is a gentle and moving story about love and loyalty
