Overview

A new Fraser brothers adventure.

When a karate-chopping kindergartner named Charley moves in next door, Edward Fraser and his older brother, Jason, see mischief in the making. Charley is good at kicking, jumping, noise-making, and running wild. He's not so good at staying out of trouble. Charley leads Edward a merry chase, complicating everything. A fragile egg baby is imperiled by his antics. The First Annual Mark Twain Memorial Jumping Frog Contest ends in controversy because of him. And Edward's ninth birthday celebration, an afternoon at the theater, requires special planning and has unpredictable results when Charley takes it for granted that he's invited.

Booklist has compared Jane Cutler's previous Fraser brothers stories to the beloved classics by Beverly Cleary, and this fourth book lives up to the promise. With numerous comical pictures to boot, Leap, Frog is a choice chapter book for early readers.

Jane Cutler is the author of three other books about the Fraser brothers: No Dogs Allowed, Rats!, and 'Gator Aid. She lives in San Francisco, California. Tracey Campbell Pearson is the author and illustrator of many books. She lives in Jericho Center, Vermont.

Edward and his new friend Charley prepare for the First Annual Mark Twain Memorial Jumping Frog Contest.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-In this fourth story about the Fraser brothers, third-grader Edward helps his brother Jason's friends with their seventh-grade sex-ed project by drawing faces on the eggs they must care for. The children plan the First Annual Mark Twain Memorial Jumping Frog Contest, and Edward insists on attending a live theater performance for his birthday. Mrs. Fraser is learning to be a clown so that she can entertain hospitalized children. Charley, an overly energetic first grader who is new to the neighborhood, appears in each episode. Readers not familiar with the previous books may find the number of characters hard to keep track of at first. However, the satisfying plot development, humorous characterizations, warm and realistic family interactions, and light mood make this title an appropriate selection for children transitioning into chapter books. Pearson's amusing pen-and-ink illustrations, one per chapter, add appeal.-Debbie Stewart, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The Fraser Brothers, Edward and Jason, are back and they are hopping with the day-to-day adventures that make the series appealing. Three unrelated stories are awkwardly drawn together by a new addition to the neighborhood, Halliburton Charles Pembroke O'Hara, called Charley. Charley is the high-energy first grader who surprises the neighborhood children and their parents with his karate kicks, loud yells, and unexpected body movements. These tales of suburban elementary-school life, with "egg-babies," frog-jumping contests, and a train trip to a children's theater are sometimes overwhelmed by Charley's antics. Jason and his friends can barely stand to be around him. But Charley does have one friend. Edward Fraser, at eight, seems a little too patient with his new neighbor and Charley seems amazingly compliant when Edward tries some management tricks picked up by observing Mrs. O'Hara's rather rare interactions with her son. "Charley, rub your belly, stand on one leg, shake like jelly, now give me the egg." These little poems stop Charley mid-karate kick and help him switch gears. Mr. and Mrs. Fraser, though initially annoyed by the little boy's behavior, accept him because he is their son's friend. The length, small typeface, and only occasional illustrations make this a daunting challenge for the audience who would most enjoy the story--early chapter book readers. Yet, the sweetie-pie story line is too saccharine to be believable for older intermediate readers. The vignettes would have been better as separate stories, with more of the exuberant illustrations to bring life to the action. (Fiction. 9-11)
From the Publisher
"In this latest series entry, bespectacled brothers Edward and Jason Fraser get a new next-door neighbor . . . Humorous dialogue that doesn't strain too hard for laughs, eccentric secondary characters, and, in Edward, an appealing third-grade protagonist with enthusiasm for art and the theater make this a good choice for readers." —The Horn Book

"Though a quieter wit than Hilary McKay's, it has some of her domestic shrewdness, and it's one of the components that makes this a very useful book in a rather undercrowded field: the high-end chapter book . . . That's a bigger jump for kids than often credited, and Cutler deftly and carefully cushions the leap for her little reading frogs, who'll appreciate this as a solid and attractive literary lily pad. . . ." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
