The Adventures of Bug & Frogger
These endearing juvenile novels make excellent readalouds in class and the family room couch. The chapters are short and the comic action keeps young readers wanting more. The books are set in a fictional small village where everyone knows everyone else's business — a fact that can make life harder for its pre-teen residents. Acclaimed childrens' novelist Sarah Ellis said "they were a very comfortable place to be."

The village of Tichburg boasts 27 volunteer firefighters, 4 fire trucks, 3 small stores, a population of 473 offbeat residents - and an 11-year-old auxiliary assistant to the fire chief named Frogger, who cheerfully wanders around town trying to be helpful to everyone. But, as Frogger is about to learn, life in Tichburg is not as easy as it should be for a kid who just wants to keep everybody happy.

Frogger's problems all add up to a hilarious series of misadventures that introduce young readers to the trials and tribulations of everyday life in the rural backwater of Tichburg - where nothing is ever as simple as it seems.

Twelve-year old Bug is penniless and on the move again. Thanks to her dad's obsessive entrepreneurial streak, she finds herself fleeing the city under cover of darkness in search of a new hometown. Her arrival in rural Tichburg is especially noteworthy because her father has staked their future on a decrepit dump truck fill with unmatched running shoes that he plans to sell at Tichurg's Harvest Fair.

Luckily one of their first customers is Frogger.
