Froggy No Tale: Coins, Stones and Shiny Stone Figurines

Froggy merrily arrived back at the market square and confidently approached the vendor. Froggy placed two coins into the vendor’s hand and exclaimed ‘Mr Snout has been very generous indeed’. The vendor thanked him and only took the one coin.

The vendor bade Froggy to stay a moment longer and fumbled for something from his long pocketed coat. The vendor produced an item and quickly handed it to Froggy, which being a small figurine in the shape of a frog! Froggy was curious and astonished and was less sure how to regard it and react.  Froggy felt somewhat embarrassed and asked confused, ‘what is this?’

The  vendor kindly advised it was a good luck charm and it would bring him much fortune if he made a wish and threw it into a drinking well. Froggy enquired further to its meaning. The vendor answered simply ‘frogs are pleasant animals of the world and are good guides during the darker hours’.
