Uncle McAllister sends his nephew Lewis a special birthday gift: a tadpole caught in a lake near his home in Scottland. That wouldn't be Loch Ness, would it? It would, and Alphonse the tadpole quickly outgrows the fishbowl, the sink, and the bathtub, and his appetite for cheeseburgers is eating the family out of house and home. Will Lewis and his beloved pet be separated? Delightful reading for children and adults, with illustrations so detailed you'll notice a new gag every reading. Share and enjoy!
