With mischievous humor and bold illustrations, Frank! is sure to be a family favorite.

This second book is titled FRANK. A cute bear all cuddle up in his vest and scarf on his way to school, he shows up late everyday. Not because he is was being rude or meandering, it is because he liked to help out people along the way-which made him late to school everyday. But then, one day at school he saves the day! The illustrations are just too cute!!! Frank looks like a cozy, confidant bear. He knows just what he is doing.

Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it?
