"Charlotte was not yet convinced by adverts and peers promoting the benefits of ownership. Property only represented the packaging of a person, but Charlotte was more concerned with developing the product. She wanted to 'be' something, not 'own' something. However, she had resigned herself to the possibility that her mother was so caught up in 'having' that she had lost touch with any exclusive idea of 'being'. It seemed that for many adults: having was being."

Charlotte loves to dream. Charlotte hates to do her homework. How can an uncertain frog help Charlotte to love her learning and carry on dreaming?
Carneades the frog shows Charlotte that there is nothing wrong with being uncertain and that education and dreaming can and should be the same thing.

'Charlotte and Carneades' hopes to allow adults and children to preserve or rediscover their own ability to hope and dream; to be open-minded to possibility; and to learn, or remember, that life can be more about 'being', and less about 'having.'
