Synopsis

It is a hot day in Africa, and Frog cannot stand the heat any longer. He takes a sip, but his thirst is unquenchable, and it's not long before things get out of hand. Can the other animals convince Frog not to be so greedy? A retelling of the Australian ‘Tidalik’ legend, 'Please Frog, Just One Sip' is based on a book by award-winning children's book writer, Piet Grobler.
