It's impossible but it's happening. The frogs are all over the sky. They're floating around and exploring peoples houses which all are asleep. the frogs even chase the big dogs out of the way. As the night ends, the frogs fall back to the ground and leave lilypads everywhere in the town. The humans are left to wonder how the lilypads got all over the place. At the end of the story pictures, we spy a pig flying too! Will pigs be flying next Tuesday.
