La grenouille qui était bleue

The Frog Who Was Blue (French version)


A unique translation of The Frog Who Was Blue. It’s not always easy being different, as Biriwita the blue frog is only too aware. He longs to be accepted at Croak College, the most famous school for frogs in Malawi, but the other students all turn their backs on him. He is just too different!

What’s wrong with you?
Why are you blue?
You’re the strangest frog we’ve seen
Normal frogs are green!” 

La grenouille qui était bleue (The Frog Who Was Blue) is a witty and charming tale underpinned by the message that being different to others is no bad thing. It will appeal to children aged 7-9, and fans of Faiz’s former books.

Faiz published The?Frog?Who Was Blue to support the World Medical Fund (WMF), a medical charity working in Africa. WMF’s focus is on the region’s poorest and most vulnerable children, including AIDS orphans, whose practical and cost-effective programmes treat over 25,000 children every year in rural Malawi

Praise for The Frog who was Blue: “Faiz writes from the heart here, telling children that it doesn’t matter what colour someone is, they can make a difference, a real contribution to society and be accepted by all.” – Japan Reviewer

Faiz's book The Frog who Loved Mathematics is a finalist in the The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards. The book has also been translated into French, German and Russian.

Faiz Kermani

Faiz loves to write funny children's books. Over the years he has been lucky enough to share childrens' enjoyment in his books when working with schools on literacy and reading projects. He has also received some great reviews, awards and media coverage. His books have been translated into French, Spanish, German and Russian.

Everything in daily life provides some inspiration for the wacky characters in Faiz’s books - even his serious day job. In fact, some of the craziest and funniest ideas have popped into his head while he has been working on something completely unrelated to children's books!

Faiz enjoys writing about what he thinks his young family and their friends would like and find funny. He hopes that his books help bring the joy of reading to life for children and their families.
