Two friends try to tell a story together, but their ideas clash when they each try to make it their own. In the end they learn it's more fun to share and work together to create something amazing.

Frog and Mouse are best friends who love to write stories … and that's where their similarities end. As Mouse begins writing a cosy tale about tea, Frog can’t resist bursting in with splashy details: How about a king? And a dragon? And "elevendy-seven" flavours of ice cream?! With both characters drawing the action as it unfolds, the look and pace of the story becomes increasingly frantic as Mouse's patience is pushed nearly to its limit. Can these mismatched pals find a way to use their talents together? Pick up this inventive work of metafiction to find out. For another friendship challenged by creative differences, try David Wiesner's Art & Max.
