Last year at an estate auction a set of bound pamphlets handwritten and illustrated by Arnold Lobel were discovered. These rhyming stories about frogs and toad are being published with color added to the black and white paintings in the manuscripts by his daughter, Adrianne Lobel.
You can hear the full story at NPR in the charming piece 'Frog and Toad' Leap Off the Page Again. You can also view a very cute audio slide show.
You can take a look inside the book at the Harper Collins web site. You can also view a nice video of Adrianne Lobel talking about the book and its creation.
And last but not least, Elaine gives us a fine review over at Wild Rose Reader.
