Everybody’s jogging and Finklehopper Frog wants to join the crowd. First, he needs a jogging suit— the most dazzling, the most ROCKIN’ jogging suit anybody’s ever seen!
But some of the other joggers think Finklehopper’s froggy fashion-sense is just plain goofy. And who ever heard of a jogging frog, anyway? Pretty soon, poor Finklehopper doesn’t feel so hopped-up about his new hobby. But a wise friend helps him discover that sometimes you’ve just got to bop to the beat of your own drummer.
