Frank!

line Frank!
by Connah Brecon (Author, Illustrator)

Late for school… Again!

Frank, a helpful bear, is ALWAYS late for school!Smile

But this is really not his fault!! This happy young bear starts off for school on time. On the way, however, he finds a “reason” to stop. He tries to explain to his teacher his many “reasons”.. but somehow they always come out as excuses!

Frank First Day

On the first day, Frank reached just as everyone was leaving from school! On the second day, he arrived soon after lunch. After all, he was helping the kitten stuck in a tree. On the third day, he reached right before lunch. He couldn’t turn down a challenge to a dance-off ! Smile Frank really is trying to get to school on time, but can he manage to get there before the school bell rings?

Frank Helping Kitty

“Frank!” is a delightful picture book from the Australian Author / Illustrator Connah Brecon.  This funny narrative of a lovable bear who is chronically late to school is immediately relatable to kids and parents both! The various excuses or reasons the bear narrates are funny and charming. The tale ends with a surprise which leads you to believe that maybe there is truth in all those unusual stories!

Frank Explain

Connah’s quirky artwork draws you in. The bright colorful artwork with dialogue talk bubbles are reminiscent of Mo Willems’ work.

Overall a nice fun read!
