When frogs suddenly vanish from a lake behind a village on the Northwest Coast, a nearby volcano awakens and an Indian girl is called to a dangerous adventure.

Summoned to a spectacular world beneath the lake, the girl is questioned by "Grandmother" about the disappearance of her "children." Just who is this mysterious old woman? And what will happen if her children are not returned? What follows both answers-and deepens-the mystery.

Careful attention is paid to historical detail both in the story and in the vibrant illustrations. Frog Girl follows the rich mythic traditions of the Haida, Tlingit and other Native peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, whose stories often tell of individuals cast mysteriously into parallel worlds inhabited by animals in human form.

A portion of the proceeds from this book is donated to the Haida Gwaii Rediscovery Program for tribal youth.

My 5 year old son really enjoyed this adventure story; the telling of how a Native American girl helps save her village and teaches her people about the interconnectedness of animals and humans. Nicely illustrated and the story moves at a good pace.
