Excerpt

For once Ferdinand Frog forgot to laugh. He was so surprised that his mouth fell wide open as he stared at Master Meadow Mouse.

He had an enormous mouth. Master Meadow Mouse shivered slightly as he looked down Mr. Frog's throat.

The grass was high in the meadow, screening the goings and comings of Master Meadow Mouse from prying eyes.
