The character of Frognapova was created as part of a birthday greeting for Clive Barnes, the wonderful theater and ballet critic, who loved the ballet and frogs. He was quite taken with her and with his encouragement her story was developed into its present form. Her memoir is told in a series of short vignettes with illustrations. We are currently searching for an appropriate illustrator. In the meantime we thought you might enjoy Frognapova as a work in progress. The descriptions of the intended illustrations are in brackets.
