Joad the Toad
by Vira Blahitka

A beautifully illustrated rhymed verse story of a little toad born with an abnormality. As a result, he was bullied by children and ignored by his peers thus leaving him friendless and very unhappy. His adversity brought him the greatest benefit which thanks to an infestation of mosquitoes, he was able to use his ingenuity to win everyone’s heart.

Vira Blahitka has led a very full life as a mother of two, a business woman and business owner in Calgary, Alberta. Her passion and priority had always been her two children for whom she always had time. During their younger years, she was inspired to create new games and moral based stories which she enjoyed with them. Vira now writes for the pleasure of writing inspirational books for children.
