Dark, dark shadows, black as pitch, loom over GRAND PLOT's FUSSBUT DITCH.
This is where the Fussbut frogs try to brighten up their bog.
The ditch has frogs of many types: large and small and some with stripes.
Two frogs that eavesdrop, slink and spy are wise guys by the names of Snoop and Pry.
A grand fund-raising Hop-In Day was dreamed up by 'The Queen of May'.
POSY POMP, the chosen Queen, can be showy but she's keen to gather funds to light the bog for her special friends, the frogs.
Her father is the Fussbut mayor, who is a champion polo player.
Posy has an older brother who looks just like their classy mother.
He has a name that suits him well because he always seems to yell.
Roary is his given name and he dreams all day of fame.
He has no time for Ziggy Zag, a snake that rests in Posy's bag.
The all-eyes bag looks all around - up, and down towards the ground.
As a helpmate who extends, Ziggy Zag, a faithful friend, spends time with the mayor's daughter but he cannot wave or potter. His slicked back hair and smart bow ties look so stylish as he glides. A 'tache sits underneath his monocle. This makes him look quite cool and comical. He has no need for hands or feet. As a snake, he is complete. “Posy Pomp can do no wrong!” calls the snake, who tags along everywhere that Posy goes. He helps her pick out shoes and bows.
