這個故事主要在描寫一個從舊金山搬到Iowa的中女孩Elaine，她在一次的自然課上恰好跟Mary Lewis同一組，老師出的題目是有關「飛翔」(flying)的主題。Mary Lewis 是青蛙的熱愛者，她想要把這個主題也跟青蛙弄上關連，最後他們二個會交出怎樣的作業呢？相當有趣的故事。適合中高年級兒童閱讀。
Elaine Chow wishes she could move back to San Francisco. Iowa feels awfully strange to her, especially since she’s the only Chinese American in her new school. Then she meets friendly Mary Lewis Thorp, her new partner for the class science project. Mary Lewis is completely frog-crazy—she has a frog horn on her bike, and even plans to change her name to Frog Thorp! The school project is about flying, but Mary Lewis wants to include frogs, even though frogs can’t fly. Or can they? The entire third grade is in for a big surprise when Elaine and her new friend bring in their creative solution!
