Tad is the smallest tadpole in the pond, an almost-a-frog with a host of brothers and sisters. When her tadpole siblings start to grow legs and disappear, she wonders where they are going and if she can get there too. But something else lives in the pond... Big Blub, a great, big, nasty fish, as old as the mud itself. One day she is the only tadpole left. She may be strong and clever, with all the best hiding places, but can Tad avoid being eaten and follow her destiny?
