Summary:  In this follow-up book to A Home for Bird, Vernon the toad is featured in three stories: “Waiting”, “Fishing”, and “Gardening”.  In the first, he is waiting on the back of a snail who finally wakes up and starts moving.  Vernon and his friends Porcupine and Skunk figure out their own way to go fishing in the second chapter.  And finally, Vernon remembers his friend Bird; Porcupine and Skunk are worried that Vernon is sad and find a way to cheer him up.  64 pages; ages 4-8.

Pros:  A quiet collection of stories, focusing on small moments and the importance of friendship.

Cons:  I think I would have appreciated this book more if I had read A Home for Bird first.
