Would you want to eat frog soup?

Would you want to eat frog soup?  This is one of the strange medical cures covered in  Carlyn Beccia's picturebook for the older reader, I Feel Better With a Frog in My Throat: History's Strangest Cures. Frog soup, using nine frogs,  was a medieval cure for  a cough.  Carlyn indicates whether these cures worked or not. For frog soup, the answer is no. Carlyn has a whimsical personality, as you can see in this photograph of her dressed as Anne Boleyn.
