Summary:  Bishop's amazing photographs accompany simple text about the life of the tree frog. There are many other animals in the rain forest, but the tree frog escapes the scary boa constrictor in order to find a moth for dinner. The perfectly clear close-up pictures look and feel as though the reader has become the tree frog.

Classroom Ideas: Classroom study of the rain forest, predator/prey, animals
