Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michele C. Hughes
This volume in the "Frankly, Frannie" series has Frannie setting her enthusiastic sights on a career in veterinary medicine. Bored with practicing on her stuffed animals, the ever-scheming Frannie longs for a way to hone her craft on real dogs. She jumps at the opportunity to help her aunt Margot (known as "Magoo") with her pets' care when Magoo breaks her leg. In preparation for an important meeting with a toy store representative about the retail stores carrying Magoo's hand-made sock dolls, it is imperative that the house be cat-hair free due to the rep's cat allergy. A disappointed Frannie is thus relegated to "president of cats" instead of being responsible for Bark, the big sheepdog, as she had hoped. Of course the pull of Frannie's new vocation is too strong, and she neglects her vacuuming duties while pursuing a characteristically hare-brained plan to cure Bark of "limp paw" at the local vet's office. Chaos ensues in the animal waiting area, and Frannie shamefully returns to Magoo's house to the sight of angry parents and a blotchy, sniffling woman from the toy store. In the end, Frannie makes amends and even contributes to Magoo's commercial success. Fans of Sara Pennypacker's Clementine series will enjoy Frannie's self-inflicted troubles and her earnest spirit. Her unique way of coining words, such as "seriosity," "impresstified" and "excitified" adds a humorous touch to the first-person narration. Full-page illustrations with the occasional double-page spread convey the whimsy of the tale and add to its sweetness. Reviewer: Michele C. Hughes

My, my, my, Frannie is a pure riot! Frannie is on another adventure, this time to visit her aunt and spend some time, Frannie hopes, with Bark. What profession do you think our protagonist is interested in this time? And what in her "worldwide life" happens while she visits her aunt? If you are between the ages of eight and ten you'll probably be delighted and intrigued by Frannie's "fantastical" tale.
