Froggy no Tail: introduction
Caves are caves in so much as dark, dank holes in the ground but this one has a pond, a tiny forever lit lantern and a sprite like frog. Here in lives Froggy no Tail, naughty Froggy no Tail, naughty, nifty Froggy no Tail, naughty, nifty, neat-handed Froggy no Tail. …And Froggy one day was curious – curious to what lay beyond the creaky, cracky and clay caved walls.
There were many a day he went on his way to see Moley Squeeky Nose and the many reappearing magic worms, but today was not that day. Today Froggy wanted to take a good look at the big lantern the one that lay just out of reach of the cave. Lanterns in the caves were tiny but lit the hidey shadows more than anything else – hidey shadows were humorous as they would often copy Froggy just out of synch or do the exact opposite movement.
The problem with hidey shadows is that they would tell terrible jokes to each other when not wanted as is the case with shadows cast by froggy sprites. But hidey shadows could be humourous, witty and often eventually helpful in difficult predicaments. When Froggy got lost they would show the way, when Froggy was sad they would make him laugh and when he needed ideas after some calamitous time they would eventually be great!
