Froggit Froggins dreams of finding his Dreamy, Dream Pond. He is bored with his pond as there are no
comfortable lily pads to sit on, or moths, etc, to eat as the HUMAN'S have been there. So he sets off in search
of his dreamy, dream pond. He thinks he has found it, and wants to keep it for himself. He sees an unusual lily
pad and a beautiful flower but doesn't realise that it is really an old onion bag and a sheet of bubble wrap.
Betty the Badger wants to play, but Froggit says no. As Forggit plays he doesn't notice that he is getting caught
up in the onion bag. Gus, a water vole, hears his cries for help and goes to help him, but he also gets tangled
up in the bag. Degsey, a duckling, tries to help but also gets caught up in the onion bag. The more they wriggle
and jiggle, the more they get tangled in the onion bag. Florrie, a dragonfly, flies by and sees what's happening,
but she thinks she is too small to help. However, when she sees that Froggit, Gus and Degsey are sinking, she
brings Betty the badger to help. Betty uses her sharp teeth bite through the strings of the onion bag and frees
Froggit, Gus and Degsey. Florrie says that she has a surprise and tells them "now you're free follow me".
The final page shows Froggit Froggins lying on a lily pad. Beside the pond there is a sign showing that he is now
in the Paradise Conservation Park. Betty, Degsey, Gus and Florrie are gathered around an illustrated map on the
sign that shows that he is now in the Dreamy Dream pond of his dreams.
