What's Where's Burgess? About

Publisher Summary

Reece Hansen is missing two things: his father and his frog. His parents are newly separated, and his dad is now living in another city, fighting forest fires. Reece struggles to get used to daily life without him. When he loses his pet frog, Burgess, Reece puts posters up around the neighborhood. But frogs are difficult to find. It takes an unusual classmate, the boy who wears a bathrobe to school, to pull Reece’s attention away from Burgess. Through his new friend and a camping trip with his mom, Reece learns that friends can come in human form and that families are resilient even when things change.
