Fickleton Farm is peaceful and calm until the arrival of a warty visitor. With confidence high, he announces to the animals, 'I'm Stud. I'm the best!' But what can a toad bring to a farm?

Stud is a born entertainer who is not afraid to fail.

He eventually earns his spot on the farm and is embraced by the menagerie. Readers will jump for

joy at Stud's stage failures and may stifle a croak at the surprise ending.
