What to expect
In The Leap-Frog, a flea, a grasshopper and a frog arrange a contest to see who can jump highest. The King offers the hand of the princess to the victor. The flea and the grasshopper, victims of their own vanity and ambition are matched against the patient, wise and humble frog. The short tale is a fable about the perils of high self-regard.
