Series: Alfie Green

Hundreds of tiny eyes peep up at Alfie Green from the sink in his garden. Frogs! Who invited them? And when the frogs tell their friends and relations about their great new swimming pool, the place is invaded. Alfie needs help -- fast. This is a job for the magic book that Alfie has inherited from his granddad. And the magic book comes up with a very unusual way of solving Alfie's problem.
