Children’s Author Scott J. Langteau Delivers Wild Christmas Tale in Holiday Release: “The Frog at the Window”

Kirkus Reviews calls “The Frog at the Window (A Completely Wild Christmas Tale)”, an “uproariously funny seasonal romp…with a building sense of anarchy!”

Video game producer (Medal of Honor; Call of Duty) turned children’s author (Sofa Boy; BULLIED), Scott J. Langteau, “tells a hilarious Christmas story” – Kirkus, about an enterprising group of forest animals led by a tiny, green frog, who quickly turn a family’s private home into their own, personal, vacation rental. What would you bet things go WILD from there? In “The Frog at the Window (A Completely Wild Christmas Tale)”, a thoughtful young girl named Katy, motivated by her concern for the comfort of her newfound friend, offers up a timeless gift in this holiday vacation story that might just kickstart a furry new tradition in your own home!

While Katy and her family spend a snowy Christmas away at Grandma’s, a cold and clever little frog jumps at the ch¬ance to move into their warm, empty home. Unfortunately, so does every other four-legged forest dweller in the area. With the perfect holiday vacation house overrun with guests, chaos quickly erupts until the group finds a peaceful solution in this holiday tale of tails. What begins as a break from the wintry woolly land transforms into an annual holiday tradition of kindness and generosity. Inspired by a photo (captured on a rainy night and posted to social media) of a small frog clinging to the living room window of Scott’s hometown librarian, “The Frog at the Window (A Completely Wild Christmas Tale)”, quickly evolved into a Christmas story with a message for every season. Reedsy Discovery gives “The Frog at the Window” 5-Stars proclaiming it a “Must Read” describing it as: “A magical Christmas story that will bring a warm smile to even the most cynical heart.
