The Queen of the Frogs [Davide Cali]

The frogs enjoy their life at the pond, filling their days with fly brunches and night music. But one day a little frog finds a crown at the bottom of the pond and is instantly pronounced a queen. She starts doing what queens do: making demands and expecting others to serve her. But when her royal subjects start to question her authority, she must prove she’s fit to rule—if she can.
Reminiscent of Aesop’s fables, this beautifully illustrated book is sure to start a discussion about the concept of leadership and the importance of humility.

The Queen of the Frogs is a beautiful tale boasting gorgeous illustrations. It is about what truly gives legitimacy to any one in powerful situations. It is a satire of the royal power, the concept of monarchy and the blindness of people who follow orders simply because someone owns an artefact that symbolizes power.

Can you really rise to power because you find by sheer luck a crown at the bottom of a pond? Does it make sense that suddenly you are entitled to countless privileges? Ultimately, the message that conveys this children’s book is that what you gain quickly can be taken from you just as swiftly.

Everything is short-lived, all the more so in the world of leadership!
