When something's amiss in Spookie House, there's usually only one person to blame—Araminta. But this time she had nothing to do with the disappearance of Barry Wizzard's frogs, and she is determined to find them. Of course, it's not going to be that easy, especially when dealing with a crazy character named Old Morris, a dangerous shark, and a demanding aquarium show audience. Can Araminta find the frogs and steal the show?

Angie Sage was born in London and grew up in the Thames Valley, London, and Kent. She now lives in Somerset in a very old house that has a secret tunnel below it. The first four books in the Septimus Heap series are international bestsellers. She is also the author of the Araminta Spookie series.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–4—Araminta Spookie feels that she is always blamed unfairly when something goes wrong or disappears, so when the father of her friend Wanda Wizzard tells her that she had better return his troupe of five acrobatic frogs, she decides to clear her name by setting up a detective agency to solve the frognapping. Although Spookie House has ghosts and at least one vampire (Uncle Drac, who likes to knit), the only character who seems to be up to anything even faintly sinister is Old Morris, a grouchy neighbor who suddenly turns his mushroom farm into a low-budget marine park. Black-and-white illustrations of cartoonlike characters with eyes on the sides of their faces appear throughout. The solution to the mystery is obvious halfway through the book. Frognapped, like the other "Araminta Spookie" books, seems designed for readers who like the idea of spooky things such as secret passages and ghosts, but do not want to read about anything even remotely scary. The humor is often so slight that it barely seems worth chuckling at. Purchase only if series fans are demanding more.—Walter Minkel, New York Public Library
