The children are waiting! Please tell them the story about the bald frog with the wig:

There once was a bald frog who wore a powdered wig. The other frogs thought he was odd- or at least a bit eccentric. But he was an artiste so he felt at liberty to be odd and eccentric. He had his wig powdered twice a week. One day he accidentally inhaled some of the powder when he hiccoughed. The powder got into his little lungs and the next day he died.
