Max is six years old, and his older brother has asked him to find some frogspawn for him. Max is happy to do this, but he needs the help of his friend Jessie. Together, the two of them wander the countryside in search of frogs and toads, going on a magical journey right in their backyards. They do not even realize that they are headed straight for Max's grandma's house, where more marvelous things await them. It is a wonderful day full of fun and adventure and culminating in the kind of cozy companionship that only a grandma can provide.
