Image: The Celebrated Jumping Frog: First Edition | Paperback: 130 pages | by Mark Twain (Author) | Publisher: SeaWolf Press (June 11, 2018)
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
-- Contains the original story (in English), a French translation that 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 French, but I can translate very well, though not fast, I being self-educated.

Animate the mouth and forelegs of this awesome amphibian and squeeze the airbag in his belly to extend the rear legs. This puppet measures 15 x 10 x 4 inches (LxWxH). Since 1976, Folkmanis has been encouraging young imaginations to blossom with its innovative and engaging specialty puppets, promoting creativity and discovery while winning nearly every industry, child development, and kid-tested award.

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 - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
