Carll is no ordinary frog. He does not like water at all. While the other frogs are playing around in the water, he sits on the bank. When it's raining, he shelters under a leaf. One day, Carll meets an old swallow, Mister Traveller. He talks about the warm South where there is no shadow and where all the animals long for a bit of rain. Carll gets hot. A plunge in the fresh water would be more than welcome. Does he dare to???
