Hello! I am looking for a book (of course) that I had when I was a child (late 1980s - early 1990s): all I can remember about the book is some of the illustrations - one was of a man riding a giant bullfrog who jumped so high that he startles some passengers on an airplane; another illustration is that of several people standing beneath a huge hen who is in the process of laying an egg (the people are holding a net to catch it). There may also be an illustration of a family going for a swim in a pool-sized goldfish bowl and a dog running through the streets of a town carrying a fire ladder. The version that I had was a paperback, probably about normal sized. If I can, I would definitely like to purchase this book, but what I really want is its name and author! Thank you so very much for your time! I've been looking for this particular book for years! =)
