A fun adventure that was a hit with my nine-year-old!
What happens when Frederick, a champion fly-catcher, is confronted with a human? After all, humans are dangerous! And worse, this human is carrying a thing of troublesome, powerful magic. What if Frederick can't get it to stop?
This fast-paced chapter book will entice young readers to keep turning pages to find out what happens next. Connecting with Frederick's frog's-eye-view reminds children to treat all creatures with respect and to be open to friendships with new or different people. Parents can use the story events as jumping-off points to talk with children about problem-solving and teamwork strategies as well as simply being kind.
The magic in this universe was delightfully unpredictable…. The best thing I could do was to relax and enjoy the ride, so that's exactly what I did.
