Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Frannie is a go getter. She definitely wants to grow up and have a job in which she will carry a briefcase and business cards. She uses grown up words like concentratey, twentyteen, jobbish and whispery to name a few. Frannie and her best friend Elliott get themselves into a mess and it all started with a raffle ticket during the Spaghetti Lunch at school. Frannie's mother has won the ticket and the family visits the restaurant with the hopes of seeing the famous food critic, Maria Cross. Frannie and Elliot mistake snails (escargot) for bugs the excitement begins when they slip a note to an unsuspecting patron whom they believe to be the critic. Screams and shouts create chaos and the crowd leaves the restaurant. As the incident unfolds Frannie and Elliot are forced to do the right thing and apologize for the mishap publicly. This humorous tale of a young girl finding her way to professionalism will keep readers chuckling and giggling to the very end. Stern does a great job of inventing words that spiral from the tongue in addition to allowing children a moment to imagine they can be whatever they choose when they grow up. Teachers and parents can discuss various careers and the path needed to achieve a dream job. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard

    LOL! with Frannie.

    Mishaps appear to follow Frannie. She cannot seem to avoid the wrong behaviors and her mishaps are a riot! Of course, except when you are the person that the unfortunate event occurs to. Frannie is trying out a new career idea, being a waitress and later a food critic. What an adventure you'll be in for with this Frannie tale. Plenty of laughs are in store for you. And her language development skill building is too much (good humor here) for example, words and phrases like "pride-itity," "scoldish," "stumpified," and "brain conversations." You'll enjoy Frannie, and if you like this tale with Frannie be sure to read "Frankly, Frannie," and "Frankly, Frannie Doggy Day Care."
