As Liam comes to terms with the loss of his older brother to a long-term illness, a new kid moves in next door from a strange country far away. To Liam, the new boy is an invader who threatens to destroy the only life he has ever known. But like the tadpoles which slowly turn into frogs under a bridge beside his house, he learns that life is constantly changing, and that true friendship often grows where you least expect it.
The Frog Bridge
The Frog Bridge story evolved from memories of family life following the death of my ten-year old brother, Peter. Much of the plot reflects situations from later in my youth and adulthood, but I described my relationship with Peter and the weeks following his death very much as I remembered seeing it at that time through a child's eyes.
