In “The Frog in The Skyscraper,” by Faiz Kermani, we meet Frijibold, a frog who was not quite happy with the life he had at the pond. He was always trying to reach his dream of living in the skyscraper. One day he left the pond and started his journey. He met Sean Shark who worked in the office building. Sean saw in Frijibold a good helper in marketing his luxury apartments. Frijibold was not a common frog, and sooner rather than later, he was living on the highest floor of the skyscraper, enjoying the view and being around humans.

Frijibold’s life was very busy, and he never had a chance to be bored. He loved his new home and adventurous life. Until one day, things started to change. During the holidays, Frijibold started to feel lonely and he missed his family.

I love Frijibold, and all that he did to live in the skyscraper. It is a good and funny story that all kids will enjoy. And, what it taught me is that… no matter what, family and friends are very important.

P.S. I loved the menu of the ponds café.
