The Story of Frog Belly Rat Bone

author/illustrator: Timothy Basil Ering

10th Anniversary Reissue

Once upon a time, in a gray endless place called Cementland, a boy finds a treasure box. It’s filled with tiny specks and a wrinkled note that says, “Put these wondrous riches in the earth and enjoy.” But a special treasure requires a special guardian, so the boy conjures a creature to protect the specks: Frog Belly Rat Bone. With subtle, delicate tones, fantastical figures, and bursts of glowing color, the surreal artwork and hand-lettered text of Timothy Basil Ering’s picture book debut exude all the whimsy of an inspired imagination.

“Frog Belly plants the idea that with some strategy, good communication, and goodwill, you can grow wonderful things.”— Portland Press Herald
