“There are many things you can’t teach a duck.
No matter how hard you try, you’d be out of luck.
For instance, you can’t teach a duck to ride a bike.
His legs are too short.
He’d do much better on a hike.
You can’t teach a duck to sing a song.
He’d sing off key and go on and on.
You can’t teach a duck to sail a boat.
He’d fall overboard… but at least he would float… ”
More nonsense to follow.

First grade, first day at school.
How many expectations, how much excitement and how much renewal hide within this term! And yet, more often than not we meet wonderful first-graders who have mixed emotions: on the one hand, they are happy and excited with their many new experiences at school, but on the other hand they face tasks which require them to be organized – a skill which is new and unfamiliar to them.
The purpose of this book is to present to the child, in an experiential way, the organizational rules required at school. First graders will find themselves in at least one of the situations Tammy describes in the book. They will identify themselves with Tammy and, in a fascinating way, acquire the class rules in various fields: organizing the schoolbag, arranging the pencil box contents, following the bell’s signal, and more.
So come on, children, let’s go find out
what Tammy’s secrets are all about!
*** At the end of the book you will find a beautiful gift from Tammy!***

Against their wishes, cousins Jacie Masters, (Punkin), and Hannah Roberts, (Boo), are thrown together for the summer at their grandparents’ Ghost Dancer Ranch. What starts as a very boring summer turns dangerous when they find themselves in the middle of an insidious plot to steal the ranch and turn it into a Casino. By clinging to their faith, and with the help of a guardian angel and Jack Wilson, a young Native American man who hopes to lead his people back to prosperity and power through the resurrection of the Ghost Dancer Religion, Punkin and Boo overcome all obstacles to solve the mystery and save the ranch.
In the best tradition of Franklin W. Dixon’s Hardy Boy Mysteries and Carolyn Keene’s Nancy Drew Mystery Stories, comes The Adventures of Punkin and Boo, an exciting series of adventure/mystery stories for young children, tweens, and teens (adults will also enjoy them.) Featuring Hannah Roberts (Boo) and Jacie Masters (Punkin), these are the adventures of two teenage cousins who meet for the first time on a summer vacation and fall right into an on-going series of action-packed, page turning, “can’t-put-em-down” books that will delight young readers and have them asking for more of The Adventures of Punkin and Boo.

Meet Freddie Cottonmouth – A Boy Who Loves the River, Big Adventures, and a Furry Beast named Tug.
Tug loves taking Freddie on wild adventures—trips to the moon, building castles, or catching fireflies with Freddie riding on his wide furry back. When Freddie finds a mysterious egg, Tug makes him promise never to eat it. But Freddie is about to discover that broken promises come at a great price.
This is the rare children’s story—both bold and tender and brimming with moments of great risk, adventure, and heart. Combining the artistic wonder of Where the Wild Things Are with the timeless storytelling of The Polar Express, this story will capture both the imagination and the intelligence of children and their parents as it sheds light on the power of sin, sacrifice, and redemption.
“A feast for the eyes and rich in meaning, Cottonmouth And The River is truly something special.”
-Bob Smiley Writer, Nickelodeon’s The Haunted Hathaways
“Casey Fritz has given families a deep and profound truth in a child-like way. With beautiful illustrations and heart changing words Cottonmouth And The River is a sure must add to every young parent’s library. My heart was moved by the story, and my guess is yours will be too.”
Elyse Fitzpatrick Author of Give Them Grace
“Artistic, poetic, mysterious, and ingenious, Cottonmouth And The River is a great read. It digs its hooks into you and pulls you deep into the story’s world. After I finished reading it to my kids, the first thing they said was, ‘Can we read it again Dad?'”
John Mark ComerFather of Three / Author of Loveology
“It is rare to find a book in this genre as wonderfully written and beautifully drawn as Cottonmouth And The River. Even more rare to find them packed with the themes of sacrifice and redemption. This book is a gift.”
Tim Chaddick Father of Three / Pastor at Reality LA
“In the wilderness of Christian children’s books, many mirages exist, promising an oasis, but instead offering the dry sands of moralism. Casey’s book stands like that famous Rock in the desert offering the thirsty and weary the cool, sweet waters of the gospel. I, with fresh tears in my eyes, recommend this book not only to kids, but to adults as well, that we might all be reminded by this wonderful, beautifully drawn story of the great adventurous story we are all in.”
