A couple of months ago Frog started getting the first of the begging emails from libraries who had run out of Team Read materiel for those young readers they'd successfully guided through the reading game. He promptly sent out a memo to all libraries asking that if they had any spare please could they send them to him so that he could replenish stocks as needed.
True to form, those libraries that have managed a good response from their customers scraped together some spares for their comrades. And others, quiescent in their glory, claimed not to have any, when they bothered to respond at all.
Imagine Frog's surprise when two hundred Mister Stretches got dumped on his desk this morning.
