Children's LiteratureFranklin loves to read and he and is friends are wild about a series of Dynaroo books. Franklin has all of the books in the series and when the new one is announced he and his friends race off to the store to get a copy. When they get to Mr. Heron's bookstore—bad news—there are no more copies. They then learn that there are copies at the toy shop, so once more they race off, but the sign in the window tells them that the new book is sold out. How about the library? Off the gang goes and what could be worse, the last copy has just gone out. Dejected Franklin heads home but what great news awaits him there. Grandma had bought her grandson a copy of Dynaroo and the Monster. The word spreads and soon all his friends are waiting at the door for Franklin to finish the book. That is not going to work, so clever Franklin finds a solution that makes everyone happy. Not the least bit farfetched when one remembers the hype and number of copies of Harry Potter Books that were so early awaited and how many sold on the first day of release. A Level 2 Reader in the "Kids Can Read" series, targeted to kids who may need some help with reading. 2003, Kids Can Press, Ages 6 to 7.
