Once upon a time, there were many frogs on a lily pad, floating on the river. Suddenly, the lily pad split, with a baby frog on one part, sitting there to quiver.

The baby frog tried to croak, to gain the attention of the others in view, but there was no one able to help the little frog, who did not know what to do.

When the sun had set, and everything got still, the frog heard an owl and a whippoorwill.

The little frog drifted onto the shore. It seemed a comfort to hear the owl hooting more.

The owl said to the baby frog, “My name is A. Wiser Guy. You look very young, lost and do not leap, so I need to ask you, why?”

Frog said, “Yes, I am lost, and do not swim or leap. Since I am a baby, no one has given me a name. All of my frog friends floated on one lily pad that split, but I do not know the direction from where we came.
