Beaver makes a deal with his father to pay half the $25 cost of buying a used canoe. Ward believes that by the time Beaver can raise his half, he will have forgotten all about the canoe. As getting a traditional job is harder than Beaver expects, he is happy to learn from his friend Richard that he can make money by selling frogs for twenty-five cents apiece. With Wally's help, Beaver manages to catch enough frogs to cover his half of the canoe. In the process, Beaver, who is becoming attached to the frogs, much like pets, doesn't even consider what will be happening to them after he sells them. He eventually learns from Richard that the frogs will be killed and sold to schools for dissection. Beaver has to decide what is more important: the canoe or the lives of his frogs. Written by Huggo
