Frank is a stuffed animal. His friend is a human. They have lots of fun together, even though Frank doesn’t talk. They go on adventures while eating candy and avoiding broccoli. They go flying and they go swimming. They go everywhere, and anywhere.
This comic-strip collection is based on a comic that ran in the 1970’s and 1980’s. This is an all-new comic that was created by the editors.
One thing I really like about the book is that Frank’s friend is never named and that the character in the title is the stuffed animal. Frank’s friend could be any kid, always wanting an adventure or to discover things. I really enjoyed the comic-strips. They were fun to read. I like how it shows Frank and his friend in all different types of scenarios. The illustrations are simple but wonderful. Look!
Frank’s friend seems to be a kid everyone would be friends with. He does wacky things, all in the realm of reality, but may imagine things (like flying through the air). I think that this collection is great for young kids and for reluctant readers or anyone who is a fan of comics. I think one of the best way to get kids into reading is comics!
I give this book four out of five bookworms!
