FREDDIE THE FROG AND THE THUMP IN THE NIGHT
Freddie Frog lives with his parents on Treble Clef Island. Awakened by a mysterious thumping, he sets out to discover what the noise is. Frog-eating crocs, a swaying rope bridge, and a humongous gray monster pepper his search. The treble clef staff becomes a map of the Island and the lines and spaces represent parts of the story.
