Summary

Summary

Mister Frog has slept through Christmas every year, and every year he has listened to his three friends talk about how wonderful it is.

"Oh, Froggy, you would love it! Turkey, plum pudding, candy canes, lots of good things to eat," says Mistress Pig.
"Candles, angels, and Christmas trees," says Missy Cat.
"Yule logs, Christmas carols, and Santa Claus," adds Master Dog.

And this year, Mister Frog is determined not to miss it -- but oh, if he could just take one small nap....

Join world-renowned children's author and illustrator Tomie dePaola as he celebrates the joyful mystery that is Christmas with Mister Frog, Missy Cat, Master Dog, and Mistress Pig. Infused with comradely warmth and colorfully irresistible pictures, Four Friends at Christmas, is a Christmas present just waiting to be opened.
