My name is Bob Brazil I was born in New Orleans La on May 18 1948 I grew up in the nearby town of Hammond a small town about 60 miles NE My favorite pastime were baseball music fishing drawing and animals At one time I had at least 6 snapping turtles in a small pond I made in my front yard Once I had kept for only a brief time a small water moccasin in a jar inside the house I used to go in our backyard to a small creek to catch turtles People who became familiar with me and my turtle fishing called the place Kooterville though in my book I selected the imaginary location in a swamp area in Manchac a small town near Lake Maurepas Every chance I got I could be found at that ditch catching kooters another name for turtles On occasion a bullfrog might appear and at night they make their presence known with their loud croaking At the age of 19 I left Hammond and moved to Northern California though I never forgot about my heritage My imagination helped me to re create some events of my past and my art training helped me to put it on paper After dropping out of painting some years ago I decided to take it up again I created many scenic paintings and one day I decided to create a cartoon character of a frog imitating a human I named it Froggy Soon I began to create other paintings of Froggy each one in a different human setting driving a car dancing fishing sports mingling with humans etc I soon came up with an idea of creating her as an infant growing up in a swamp and being surrounded with other native creatures all working together and enjoying the simple pleasures of life without the modern conveniences present in human society Further encouragement from family and friends inspired me to write this book It is my wish that Froggy provides wholesome enjoyment for the young readers and the whole family It is filled with many great object lessons as well as good humor Though it is primarily written as a children s book m
