The story, told in detailed illustrations with only a few captions, concerns frogs who mysteriously rise out of their pond on floating lily pads as the sun sets on a Tuesday evening. The flying frogs invade a nearby village and have a number of encounters with the startled residents before dawn arrives.
The book was later adapted into a short animated film in 2000, and was directed by Geoff Dunbar and produced by Paul McCartney. It was included as part of The Paul McCartney Animation Collection DVD in 2004.
