“Between Tads and Toads is a work of poetic and lyrical storytelling in the animal and nature fiction sub-genre, and was penned by author Christine May. Packed with gorgeous illustrations in a hand-drawn classic style, the story is told entirely in verse but is intended for adult audiences owing to its complex thematic content. Frederic, our central protagonist, is a frog who fails to fit in with the elegant world of pondlings around him, and we follow his exploits as he peeks beneath the veneer of the seemingly perfect world in which he is supposed to find his place. What results is an elegant throwback to some really classic storytelling and themes.

“Author Christine May has captured the look, feel, and soul of true classic works with this excellent narrative tale, one which readers could get lost in again and again. It begins with the obvious Wind In The Willows atmosphere of animals in a cultured society, but then elements of P.G. Wodehouse, T.S. Eliot, and Rudyard Kipling begin to insert themselves into the gorgeous verses, serene idylls of the country world, and the construction of a moving and emotive plot around Frederic himself. One of the things which really impressed me about the work was the ease of rhyme and rhythm, with nothing feeling forced in order to bring the story about. The words flow just like the water, the breeze, and the characters do, making Between Tads and Toads a poignant and striking work that will certainly bridge the gap for those seeking modern classics to enjoy.”
