Mary’s Review: Frankie woke up with a terrific idea. It was a wonderful day for a picnic. He invites his friends Wendy, Boris and Ty. They’ll all be there. Excitedly, he runs to the store and buys all he needs for a cookout. When the time comes for the picnic he waits and waits for his friends to show up, but they don’t come. Frankie disappointed decides he’s going to have the picnic anyway. See what Frankie does to have his picnic; make new friends and how even though they are different can be fun. See how his old friends feel when they realize how badly the have treated their friend Frankie. This is a book we can all learn from.
I love the little monster illustrations. They are so cute.
I recommend this book for ages 5 to 9.
Good job Kurt and Michelle.
