Synopsis
Only Owen Jester knows about the amazing secret that just tumbled off a freight train in Carter, Georgia. Owen Jester wishes his family hadn't moved to his grandfather's house after his dad lost his job. For one thing, his grandfather's live-in nurse sure knows how to ruin anyone's idea of a good time. And then there's Viola, the girl next door, who can't ever mind her own business. She even thinks Owen should put his freshly captured bullfrog back into the pond. Then late one night, Owen hears a curious noise when the train passes by his grandfather'shouse. Something mysterious and wonderful has fallen off the train. When Owen finally discovers what it is, he realizes he just might need a know-it-all after all. But can he trust Viola keep the most fantastic secret to ever tumble into Carter, Georgia?

Owen Jester wished his family hadn't moved to his grandfather's house after his dad lost his job at the hardware store. But things take an unexpected turn when something falls off a freight train and Owen finds it. If he can simply manage to evade his grandfather's snappish housekeeper, organize his two best friends, and keep his nosy neighbor, Viola, at bay, he just might be in for the summer of a lifetime. With her trademark wit and easy charm, Barbara O'Connor spins a fantastic fable of friends, enemies, and superbly slimy bullfrogs.

Reviews
"O'Connor has perfect pitch with this comic adventure, which ends with a happy resolution everyone, even the frog, can live with." New York Times Book Review "O'Connor masterfully twists the two plot threadsOwen's gradual realization that Tooley must be released, and the children's Fitzcarraldo-like mission to move the submarine through brush to pondinto a fully convincing tale pitched perfectly to the upper elementary grades." BCCB , Starred Review "This well-crafted novel creates a charming mix of the commonplace and the extraordinary. . . . Appealing and authentic, this tale of summertime adventure will be a hit with readers year round." School Library Journal , Starred Review "O'Connor has spun a lovely read that perfectly captures the schemes and plans of school-age kids in the long days of summer." Kirkus Reviews , Starred Review "With a quiet sensitivity, O'Connor explores the effects of unemployment and relocating and the joys of both longtime companions and new, unexpected friendships. Filled with charm and wonder, this finely crafted novel reminds readers of the mysteries to be found in childhood and the outdoors." BookPage ". . . the story is smoothly written, the secret is ingenious and believable, and who can resist a frog named Tooley Graham?" Booklist "O'Connor's funny, triumphant tale reveals the wisdom of listening to one's inner voice over the noise of one's peers." Publishers Weekly
