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 looking forward to the next book, Vampire Brat. Oct 13, Heather Collins rated it liked it. I read this with my 7 year old daughter. It was a fun read, but I would have greatly preferred if the author had left out the word "stupid" which was used way too many times, and the reference "dim-witted" that described the other main character in the book. We don't use the word stupid, so it was just something I had to filter out many times in the book.
Sep 26, Kira Nerys rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm glad to confirm I've read this before. I prefer the first and second Araminta Spookie books, but it's a pleasure to return to her spider- and ghost-infested home. With a tone that parodies mysteries or perhaps detective noirs , Araminta and Wanda set about solving the case of the disappearing frogs, aka the Frognapping. Sage builds the world outward here, beyond the bounds of the house and its grounds, but Araminta still gets into loads of trouble.
She's still amusing, but even the first time I read this I worried about Wanda. It's my opinion that Araminta's not a particularly good friend in this one, and unlike the previous books where she doesn't want to be , that irks me. With that said, it's a thoroughly enjoyable read, and perhaps I simply loathe to think that I could run into her someday! Sebetulnya buku ini bagus untuk ukuran anak2. Meskipun masih dr segi anak2 hehehe jadi rasanya ngga adil klo bilang seluruh seri buku ini dibilang aneh. Meskipun ya, memang aneh-nya itu ngga salah hahaha GaJe!

A bit short on empathy. Silly enough that my 7-year old enjoyed it, but not sure there were any positive take-aways. Mar 16, Kendrick rated it it was amazing. When Araminta went looking for them they were at a place called mushroom farm. It is owned by a mean old man named old Morris and sir Horace [a ghost in a suit of armor: In the end sir Horace got his treasure back and Araminta and Wendy had another great adventure. My favorite character in this book was Sir Horace because he reminds me of my brother when he is in a nice mood. Another reason why he is my favorite character is because he ends up in weird situations and it is a funny experience.
Plus he is a cranky person when he is mad so that relates to my brother because my brother is always cranky when he does not get enough sleep. The most funny part is that sir Horace is always falling apart everywhere he goes and has to be fixed often. The climax of the story was when Araminta and Wendy were in charge of the fish show because they were trying to save the little frogs.
So in the fish show Araminta knew all the frog tricks so she had to add on to the show to make the audience say wow. So what happened was that the acrobatic frogs accidently fell in to the large water tank and so Wendy jumped in to save them but the audience thought it was part of the show. So what Araminta did was that she tossed Sir Horace in to the water [because Sir Horace jumped in to a shark suit: I would like to recommend this book to anybody that loves a good laugh all the time because you will be laughing though out most of the book anyway.
I also recommend this book to any kid who likes adventure because this book makes you want to stand up on your tippy toes because you really want to know what comes next. Most of the book can be hilarious but some parts are really serious because of the moment. But when you are in the middle of the book the book makes you read more because it is very entertaining and the only way you are going to stop is when you are tried because this book is so great. I will rate this book because this book makes me want to read the next book really bad and I loved this story.
Aku akan memulai operasi Agen Detektif Spookie. AKu akan menjadi chief detektif dank au bisa menjadi anak buahku Barry kehilangan katak katak kesayangannya. Araminta yang mengetahui hal ini segera mengajak Wanda untuk menjadi detektif dan menemukan katak katak tersebut. Pada saat yang bersamaan dengan hilangnya para katak, ada perawat baru untuk membantu Paman Drac. Kecurigaan Araminta pun muncul, pasti perawat itu yang menculik katak katak Barry. Petunjuk mengarah ke Aku akan memulai operasi Agen Detektif Spookie. Petunjuk mengarah ke ladang jamur milik Old Morris yang telah dialih fungsikan menjadi dunia air ajaib.
Sepertinya Old Morris dan Si Perawat bekerja sama menculik katak milik Barry dan menggunakannya sebagai pertunjukkan sirkus. Tapi bagaimana cara Araminta dan Wanda menyelamatkan katak katak tersebut? Belum lagi mereka harus membantu Tuan Horace yang ingin mengambil kembali harta karun miliknya. Ah, seri ketiga ini ternyata sedikit lebih tebal dari dua seri sebelumnya, bahagianya saya.
Seperti dua seri sebelumnya, Araminta yang berani dan sedikit usil membuat saya menikmati alur ceritanya.
Kali ini ceritanya kembali berlatarkan pantai dan sekitarnya, yang menurut saya cukup unik karena biasanya keajaiban dan fantasi kan lebih identik dengan hutan yang rimbun atau rumah penyihir. Meski ceritanya ringan, menurut saya masih perlu dampingan orang tua saat anak anak membacanya. Oh dan sebenarnya akan lebih seru kalau dibaca urut dari seri pertama, karena kita jadi lebih paham seperti apa tabiat dan asal mula para tokoh di dalam cerita ini.
Kapan ya terjemahan lanjutannya terbit? Nov 08, Donald Scott rated it liked it. I usually try children's fiction on occasion, but something about Angie Sage's Araminta Spookie and Wanda Wizzard and the other characters keeps me coming back for more. Probably my favorite in the series, Frognapped finds Araminta - think Wednesday Addams, but with more personality and droll sarcasm - finds herself under suspicion when the trained acrobatic frogs of Barry Wizzard - Wanda's father - go missing. Known for her practical jokes, this was one Araminta didn't pull off, so forming a I usually try children's fiction on occasion, but something about Angie Sage's Araminta Spookie and Wanda Wizzard and the other characters keeps me coming back for more.
Known for her practical jokes, this was one Araminta didn't pull off, so forming a detective agency with Wanda, the two young girls follow a lead in the form of a lady massage therapist, trailing her to Old Morris's mushroom farm - now interestingly turned into a marine park featuring a killer shark and - you guessed it - acrobatic frogs.
I really loved that book three took the readers out of Spookie House more, showing off Araminta's surroundings and even more colorful characters from the neighborhood. The book the entire series, actually is genuinely funny, too, with an action-filled, very satisfying ending that satisfies.
Again, maybe my favorite of a series that can be read - and enjoyed - by anyone of any age.

In my opinion, Frognapped is a great book because the author Angie Sage made the book very funny, mysterious, and something you think about through out the book. I am able to relate to Araminta because she fights with Wanda, just like I fight with my sister Jasmin. She fights with Wanda because Wanda gets Araminta into trouble. When Araminta really does nothing ,it's all Wanda that does the trouble, just like my sister.

I thought about the book I read and it had a lot of solving mysteries and finding the answer to each of those problems.
I can prove this had mysteries from the text because it says "Were have you put my frogs, Araminta! And the author Angie Sage is a great author. Jun 28, Keeley rated it really liked it.

Araminta and Wanda must do anything possible, including staging a fake fish show in order to rescue Barry's prized frogs. Another super fun book in the Araminta Spookie series! Jan 26, Tasneem rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love Angie Sage. And the sad thing is that I had not heard of her until recently when her daughter happened to mention that her mother was a writer and showed me first editions of her books. Well now, I've since got the books out of the library and fallen in love.
What a fantastic story-teller. Araminta is such a fab heroine and her motley family and mad-cap adventures are divine. Funny, clever, witty and just plain enjoyable. A must read for children and those who adore children's literature. Apr 01, Mindy rated it liked it.
Usually Araminta gets blamed when something's amiss in Spookie House. 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.
I think she is really funny!! My son Ryan loves your Araminta Spookie series. We want to know what happened to Jenna and what she did from the time she was crowned queen and when she died.
