Once upon a time there was a toad who lived in the roots of a big chestnut tree.
During the hot summer days he relaxed in the shadow of a daisy while during the nights he climbed on the highest root and stared at the moon. The moon was bright and shiny and a warm wind heated his hearth. Soon the toad fell in love with the moon. So early one morning he woke up and decided to go to look for the moon.

In this section of my homepage you can see some watercolors which illustrate one of my favorite stories: the toad and the moon. I love story telling and reading and also story writing and illustrating. Frogs and toads are my favorite subjects and even if I kissed plenty of them, I still haven't found my prince.
