Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Franklin's Holiday Treasury by Paulette Bourgeois, illus. by Brenda Clark, unites four previously published tales starring the titular turtle.
Children's Literature
The four stories in this compilation were all published separately from 1996 to 2001. Franklin, the turtle, is a most likeable character and the stories ring true. He has feeling like most kids and faces issues that are sometimes tough, but he always seems to do the right thing. The first story relates to Halloween and Franklin is having a difficult time trying to decide what his costume should be. Finally he creates one that is a real winner—he gets a prize for being the best green monster. In the running subplot, the kids are afraid of a ghost and their teacher Mr. Owl tricks them into thinking that he is a real ghost. The kids figure it out and they even pool some of their candy and leave it for Bear who was too sick to enjoy the festivities. The second story concerns Franklin and Valentines Day and how sad he feels when he looses all his cards, but then makes it up to his friends. Franklin's Christmas Gift, once again reminds kids that it is truly better to give than receive. The final story is also about sharing. It is Thanksgiving and Franklin's grandparents can't join them for dinner. Each family member invites guests and suddenly there are more for dinner than the house can accommodate, but ever resourceful they dine en plein air as the original feasters did. The illustrations are warm and frequently amusing. If you don't have the individual books, this is a great buy for home or library. 2002, Kids Can Press,
