Marcus Aurelius was an emperor of Rome and a Stoic. Musa is a Devil Frog: a giant, armored amphibian from the Cretaceous period 65 million years ago called Beelzebufo ampinga, the largest frog ever to live. He’ll eat anything that can fit in his mouth, and even some things that can't! They are friends, and together go on adventures. What wisdom will Marcus share? How much will Musa eat?
Marcus has seen a pandemic before, and is content to meditate at home, focusing on what he can control. Musa is restless and is having trouble adjusting to coughing in his elbow, washing his hands, and only seeing other people virtually on a screen. Musa also contemplates a recent visit to China where he ate some live bats at a market...
Marcus wants to learn about the Mayan culture and people, visit Chichén Itzá and Tulum and other ancient ruins, and swim in a cenote. Musa is almost as interested in decapitating players of an ancient ball game as he is about eating a trailer-full of papadzules!
Marcus wants to experience a dynamic city at the intersection of the East and the West. He plans to ride a cable car to the Big Buddha, sail in a junk boat, and climb to Victoria Peak. Musa can’t figure out what a Hong or a Kong is, but he is certain there’s roast goose to put in his mouth!
Marcus is interested in learning more about American history, visiting the New England Aquarium and Museum of Fine Arts, and taking in the beauty of America’s most European city. Musa isn’t sure where Boston is or what it’s for, but he’s going to eat as many Boston Cream Pies as possible.
Marcus and Musa go to the dentist for checkups. Marcus has good dental hygiene. Musa isn’t sure what a dentist is or does, or if he even has teeth. But, he does know he's going to steal all the toys.
