We rated this book:


“Frank was late. Frank was always late.” It turns out that Frank is always running into individuals in need. Whether it’s a cat stuck in a tree, a charity dance-off, a family of bunnies bullied by an ogre, or an attack by a giant zombie lizard king, Frank can’t help but intervene. This makes him late for school on a daily basis. Frank redeems himself, however, when he saves the school by organizing a cooperative dance-off in which everyone, including the ogre and the giant zombie lizard king, gets involved. From that point forward, Frank is always right on time.

Frank! became an instantaneous favorite in our house because of the zany, dynamic illustrations. A beginning reader would be able to open the book and follow the story without a single reference to the words. The characters are expressive and the action engaging. We giggled over the ogre’s visibly horrific stench and the silliness of Frank’s mishaps, particularly the runaway tree. Frank! is Brecon’s American debut; I know my son and I will be on the lookout for more.
