Overview

This larger-format special collectible edition of the first Franklin book celebrates the 25th anniversary of the world's most beloved turtle.
Includes never-before-seen archival material and personal letters from the author and illustrator that offers a fun behind-the-scenes peek at this Canadian classic.
A perfect gift for long-time fans and a new generation of readers alike.

In the Franklin Classic Storybook that started it all, poor little Franklin has one of the most common childhood afflictions --- he is afraid of the dark. This is particularly distressing for Franklin as he happens to be a turtle, and the darkness he fears is, of course, inside his own shell. Bravely, with shell in tow, he sets forth to seek help and in the course of his travels discovers a bird who is afraid of heights, a polar bear who is afraid of the cold, and even a hydrophobic duck. In the end, Franklin discovers that everybody is afraid of something, even his own mother, and his response to what he has learned is guaranteed to draw a smile.

My son loves this book and so do I. It presents a great lesson on being afraid. It is not just about being afraid of the dark, but about fears a lot of the animals have. The lesson is that it is okay to be afraid and offers a way to cope with your fear until you are not afraid anymore.
