Once, there was an old woman named Kaie. She lived in an old wooden house that was filled with frogs. There were frogs in the kitchen, frogs in the living room, frogs in the hallway, and frogs in the bathroom. To be honest, there was hardly a place that wasn’t filled with frogs. While Auntie Kaie is perfectly content living with her amphibious friends, the frogs themselves are not. They need water, or else they will die. And Auntie Kaie is deathly afraid of water! So, a revolution begins to brew. The frogs turn on all the taps in the apartment, and their celebrations begin. They swim and dive and splash around the flooded apartment. Kaie is shocked when she sees all the water, but when she realises how happy the frogs are, she overcomes her fear and joins them as they play. A happy ending, indeed!
