About the Book

Swogg and his 10 friends all live most happily in a beautiful bog called Skunk Hollow. The cleverness, creativity and passion Swogg shows for his friends will hopefully delight, amaze, and inspire you and your children. If your child had a tough day, needs a laugh, or occasionally has troubles falling asleep — this is exactly what Swogg the Silly Frog and his friends do best!

Inspired by a proud grandfather’s dream and illustrated by a very talented Stefanie St. Denis who brilliantly brings all 11 characters to life.
