"In the swampy margin of a broad stream in the garden lived the toad, with her son. He was uglier even than his mother, and when he saw the pretty little maiden in her elegant bed, he could only cry, "Croak, croak, croak."

- Hans Christian Andersen, Thumbelina

Considering the story of Thumbelina, I have to say he's pretty well-dressed for a toad!
