The book is a MUST read for all children. Its one of the Franklin series authored by Paulette Bourgeois and the beautiful in detail illustration is done by Brenda Clark , giving life to Franklin and his world!
Brenda have put so much heart in her drawings that though the story is already good , the pictures uplifts the narration to a whole new level... the windows , window- sills, towels, flowing curtains, wall hangings in bear's , fox's and the Turtle's room, décor, toys, prints on bed sheets, lamps, bookracks.....each and every little thing has come alive by the touch of her magical pencil . The homes of the turtle's and the bear's and fox's, have that look kiddish look .And boy! They are Clean, organized, well equipped with books, trunks, chests ,mirrors and all that stuff found in an upper middle class home.
Whew! am talking much about the graphics.
The story is the spine and a well written one is like a spine blessed with perfect vertebrae and elastic muscles. It makes the body of the book move gracefully and enchantingly.
It just happened with the Franklin series.
A must read ..... Happy Reading .
