Come on a journey with the frog… Author and illustrator Josh Langley has created a delicious combination of cartoons and messages that embrace all aspects of life…the ordinary, the absurd and the wonderful.

Inspired by a Tibetan Buddhist Fable, Frog and the Well invites you to look outside of what is normal, to step outside of our own limited thinking and see life differently- to find the courage and perspective by looking inwards to finding personal happiness.

Josh’s deceptively simple folk-art stick figures, disguise a message that resonates deeply with his  readers; his creative commentary is both poignant and humorous offering a deep and profound spiritual awakening or a laugh and smile at the simple joy life brings. He firmly believes that we are all ‘Humanly Perfect’ – built to make mistakes, stuff things up occasionally but ultimately to enjoy life, whichever way it’s dealt.

The Frog and the Well is a wake up call, or for some, shock therapy to celebrating life; an unfettered and entertaining journey to finding personal happiness, the unconventional way.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    The Frog and the Well is a simply delightful mix of both conventional and unconventional wisdom, and wonderfully simple cartoons. It’s the sort of book you might read quickly, and gain a lot from, or read slowly and gain much more. Thanks to Josh Langley and Big Sky for bringing it out at a time when we so many of us could use a small dose of gentle, good humored, and wise advice.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    A humorous blend of comment and cartoon which encourages us to think a little bit deeper to some of life’s big questions, whilst reminding us to smell the roses once in a while. A splendid first effort.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    I purchased 2 copies of your book as I enjoy spiritual books. This is fantastic and I gave a copy to my stepdad to read as he can be negative sometimes. Mum has read it also and I just wanted to say thank you for producing a book that is inspiring but also easy to read as some people find it hard to read books in general. Keep up the good work!!!!!!!

    I downloaded this book to my Kindle a couple of months ago. I thought it was fantastic. The cartoons are charming and the messages contained are those of hope and joy. No matter whether you’re on a spiritual journey, a parent reading to your child, someone who needs a lift or someone who’s really down, there is something for everyone in this little book. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up buying a physical copy from the publisher at[…] I must admit the Kindle copy doesn’t compare to the physical copy, which is beautiful. This is one of those books that you like to keep close by so you can just pick it up every now and again to give yourself a lift. I bought some as Christmas presents as well and everyone loves it.

  12. Rated 5 out of 5

    This wonderful quirky book is simple and unique offering a new and fresh perspective on life, love and happiness. Optimistic, forward thinking and a delightful read. Words to live by and thought provoking. The author should be congratulated. I understand there is another book on the way. Should be fun to read also. There is not nearly enough of these types of literature on the market for adults and children alike.
