frog and toad

Frog – practical, a problem-solver, eternally patient – and his best friend Toad, who is ruled by his reactions to his surroundings: he wants this, he fears that. Frog never comments on Toad’s behavior, he takes gentle action. More often than not, a story ends not with Toad learning a lesson but with the two friends simply continuing on, side by side.
