Image: The Jumping Frog | Kindle Edition | by Mark Twain (Author). Publication Date: April 2, 2020
Frog Jumping Day
-- The roots of Frog Jumping Day go back to Mark Twain's first short story. It was first published in 1865 as Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog. Later, he published it as The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. It is also known under a third title The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.

Read: The Jumping Frog
-- Containing the original story (in English), a french translation which was published in La Revue des Deux Mondes and which Twain finds to be a travesty of the original text, and Twain's re-translation of the french back into English, word for word (this is where things degenerate). Best appreciated if you can read both French and English, but even if you skip the french version it's truly brilliant. As good old Samuel Clemens himself put it in his foreword I cannot speak the French language, but I can translate very well, though not fast, I being self-educated.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
