Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hamilton
Franklin loved belonging to clubs, so he decided to start his own. His hideaway only had room for Bear, Snail, and Rabbit, so after asking them to join his Secret Club, Franklin forgot about the rest of his friends. When Beaver asked to join the club, Franklin kindly explained to her that there was no more room. Feeling left out, Beaver started her own club and planned many exciting adventures. Soon Franklin, Bear, Snail, and Rabbit felt left out. They realized how Beaver must have felt. So they came up with a happy solution: Join the two clubs together! A great lesson for the young reader-things are more fun when everyone is included. Brenda Clark's colorful and realistic illustrations add to the appeal of the book.

Meet the Author


When asked what she hopes children will learn from her books, Paulette Bourgeois explains: “It is most important to look for the wonder in ordinary things.” Some of this wonder, and a curious anxiety, spill over into her character Franklin. The world's best-loved turtle overcomes the challenges of the everyday life of a five-year-old in a way that resonates with children. Since 1986, Franklin and Paulette have championed a fear of the dark, boastful fibs, thunderstorms, new friends, museum dinosaurs,...

When Paulette finished writing her first book, Franklin in the Dark, she knew that she would always write stories for children. With each new book, she imagines a child turning the last page and giving a satisfied sigh. Paulette explains: “I want readers to feel connected to my storybook world — to feel, to smell, to touch and to explore the landscapes, both internal and external, that I have created. As I write, I draw on my own experiences and find it easy to remember emotions and situations.”

Although Paulette is best-known for the Franklin books, she is also the writer of fiction and non-fiction for young readers. In her non-fiction writing, she explores another realm of wonders with her young readers. She shares “amazing” information on many topics: from apples to potatoes; from fire fighters to garbage collectors; from the moon to the sun! What's next, the universe! The Sun: Starting with Space was shortlisted for a Science in Society Book Award (1995), given by the Canadian Science Writer's Association, and won the honor of Parents' Choice Approval, given by the US Parents' Choice Foundation (1997).

Currently, Paulette is endeavoring to write longer books for children, and trying to follow the advice she gives to children: “Read, read, read and write, write, write.”
