Artist's Description

Tiny Toad ’Neath Parasol Mushroom
by Jean Gregory Evans

Somewhere deep in a dark rained upon forest, a wicked witch was looking for ingredients for her wicked wacky recipe for toad cupcakes. You might think that she’d be interested in a great big toad with great big legs and great big feet and great big eyes. Oh, but no, she was looking for an innocent tiny toad not much older than a tadpole, a small fry. She was looking for a teensy weensy big toad just large enough to have brand new warts. Wee warts, in fact.

As she left her sorceress cottage, Wicked Witch grabbed her umbrella because on a rainy day, her witchy broom just won’t do. She tromped through the wet woodland under her big black umbrella as rain droplets sprinkled down from a grey, gray sky and covered everything with wet drench from their roots and toes to the tops of their branches and heads.

Looking everywhere, searching with her witchy eyes, she saw a tall white mushroom, a mushroom that would make a great mushroom cupcake … but on this day, she was looking for a tiny toad with wee warts.

Who would think to look under the white parasol umbrella of a tall white mushroom to see if a tiny toad with wee warts was camouflaged and hiding under there? Yes, you are right, Wicked Witch!

Standing on one foot, the tiny toad with wee warts froze and held his breath, not blinking even one froggy eye as he peered out from a window in a brown Oak leaf that had recently fallen to the forest floor, as some leaves do in early Autumn.

Unfortunately for her, Wicked Witch had mistakenly left her witchy glasses with her witch’s broom so she overlooked the camouflaged wee warts and the tiny toad. She couldn’t see tiny toad with wee warts concealed and obscured in the wet shadows under the tall white mushroom. She looked all day and she looked all night in the wet woodlands and never did find any tiny toads with wee warts under any white mushroom umbrellas.

If you know the species of this mushroom, please tell me!
