Description


All Charlie Tickler wants is for his parents to listen.

All Francine (a.k.a Frog) Castle wants is to be the world's greatest detective.

So begins the friendship of Charlie and Frog, who soon become a crime-solving duo, restoring order to Castle-on-the-Hudson.

Charlie, the new kid at the Castle School for the Deaf continues to find unexpected mysteries in the sleepy town of Castle-on-the-Hudson with Frog, his new friend and crime-solving partner. Just when Charlie thinks everything has settled down, a piece of the school's famous history goes missing, and it's up to the Charlie and Frog to solve the case, before it's too late.

About the Author


Karen Kane has worked as an interpreter for the Deaf community for over 25 years. Her path to Charlie and Frog took her from a small village near Rochester, New York, to the bustle of Washington, DC. The people she met along the way inspired her writing with their strength, warmth, and humor, especially those in the Deaf community. Karen graduated from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, and received her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. When she's not writing, you can find her in the person as a sign language interpreter at Gallaudet University or lost in the stacks of her local library.


Praise For…


PRAISE FOR CHARLIE & FROG

"An enjoyable read that artfully mixes adventure, heart, and cultural competence."—Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR CHARLIE & FROG

"Kane is a graduate of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, and she seamlessly integrates American Sign Language (ASL) and deaf characters into the story, subtly reminding readers that these are capable, complete individuals. A worthy addition to mystery collections."—Booklist

PRAISE FOR CHARLIE & FROG

"Kane's debut, a light and engaging mystery, takes on added depth through its focus on the Deaf community. Charlie longs for kinship with others; intriguingly, it's through learning sign language that he finds friendship and connection."—Publisher's Weekly
