A delightful welcome to the Charlie & Frog: The Boney Hand blog tour! I am superduper delighted that I can be part of this tour, the book sounds fabulous!
What do I have for you today? An excerpt (a very exciting one), a giveaway (sorry US only), and of course book/author information.
Let’s get this tour started~
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.
Karen Kane’s path to Charlie & Frog led her from a small village near Rochester, NY, to the bustle of Washington, DC. The people she met along the way inspired her writing with their 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, Karen spends her days as a sign language interpreter at Gallaudet University or lost in the stacks of her local library. Charlie & Frog is her first novel.
