If something's missing or things just aren't right, usually Araminta has something to do with it; so, it's only natural that Mr. Wizzard comes looking for Araminta when he can't find his acrobatic frogs. This time, though, she had nothing to do with their disappearance, but she's determined to find out who did - and her first suspect is Uncle Drac's physical therapist, Nurse Watkins. Just where does she go every day, and why is one of her stops the mushroom farm of Morris FitzMaurice - the grump...more

This is the third book in the Araminta Spookie series by Angie Sage. I discovered this book at our local library and thought it might be a fun, spooky read for our oldest. She loved it and has read through the entire series very quickly. Now I'm just trying to catch up.

This story centers on Araminta and Wanda's efforts to rescue Barry's stolen frogs and recover Sir Horace's lost treasure chest. The story is entertaining and exciting. It's an easy read and I really enjoyed reading it. I'm lookin...more

Frognapped In book three of the Araminta Spookie series, Araminta is accused of misplacing Barry Wizzard's (Wanda's father) circus frogs. He has five frogs that can perform a bunch of tricks and now they have gone missing. Araminta is immediately blamed for anything that goes wrong in Spookie House, so instead of fighting against Barry she decides to set off to find the frogs and bring them back. Little did she know that that would require her to break into Morris FitzMaurice's property to do so...more

Summary:
Usually Araminta gets blamed when something's amiss in Spookie House. But this time she had nothing to do with the disappearance of Barry Wizzard's frogs, and she is determined to find them. 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?

Review:
Of course I liked this one - it contains frogs!!
Sheila Ruth
Frognapped is a really cute and fun book for elementary-age readers. It's book 3 of a series, but it works just fine without having read the first two. Araminta's hijinks are amusing and evoke the imaginative play of elementary kids. The humorous and lightly gothic illustrations by Jimmy Pickering perfectly complement the text.
Robert
Araminta Spook, having been a ghost-hunter and a Birthday Present Questor in the first and second volumes of the series, respectively, this time becomes a Private Dectective. She has her own sidekick in the shape of Wanda and the pair attempt to solve the mystery of the frognapped...frogs! Much amusing chaos ensues.
Brooks Jones
Another charming entry in this series. I especially enjoyed the funny ending, and the thought of Sir Horace in the shark suit is just delightful.
Mandyfujita
A nice mystery to find out where Barry's acrobatic frogs are. Araminta Spookie and her new friend Wanda Wizzard are both involved in finding Barry find his 5 frogs. Old Morris and Nurse Watkins are prime suspects. A more complicated plot than the previous two books. Very enjoyable.
Samantha
Ariminta's BFFs dad is wondering who stole his frigs. whenever anything is missing in Spookie house, they always blame Ariminta. well, her BFF and her go on a hunt for the frogs, but do they find them? or did something bigger eat them for breakfast.....

I read this one out loud to Little Miss as part of her bedtime stories. (Legomeister plowed through it in what seemed like half an hour.) It was fun to read, light but interesting with quite a few funny spots. Little Miss loves it.

As usually, really liked it! All the same praises I've give for the other Araminta books I give to this one too! And my students really loved this series. They're really bummed we don't have time to read the 4th and 5th ones too.

I want to be ten again and hang with Uncle Drac. Araminta Spookie, solves the case of the missing frogs, does a WaterWonderland show. A ghost shark finds a treasure and so much more. A octopus and fish hat become a big hit.
Rachel
I only gave this book four stars even though I loved it because it was a bit of a set up for other books after it. We do love this series so much we ordered Books 3-5 because the library did not have them.
Emily
this book also is great! i love how the author keeps having new personalities for each character and how it proves that no one is exactly the same and you can be friends with them anyway.
Kevin Fanning
These books are really fun. Kinnell is super into them. As am I. I really dig Araminta. I don't totally get whether Uncle Drac is supposed to be an actual vampire? But whatever! Fun!
Ariana Lane
I liked it at first but after a little bit it was a little boring. I did not like it that much because it was mean that Barry to assume that ariminta took his froges

It was a cute read but the story was just fine. Despite that, I really like how Angie Sage maintains the humor and adventure in her books. It was still enjoyable.
