FRANKLIN'S FLYING BOOKSHOP
Shortlisted for the IBW Book Award 2019
Franklin the dragon loves stories and loves reading stories to people, too, but everyone is scared of him. One day, he meets a girl named Luna who, rather than being afraid, is fascinated to meet Franklin, having recently read all about dragons in one of her books. They instantly become friends and talk nonstop about what they've read: books about roller-skating, King Arthur, spiders, and how to do kung fu. Together they hatch a plan to share their love of books with others by opening a bookshop--a flying bookshop, that is--right on Franklin's back!
Franklin, a well-read and peace-loving dragon, and Luna, a young girl with an independent spirit and an insatiable love of reading, make fantastic role models for young children. Franklin's Flying Bookshop brings the magic of classic fairy tales into the twenty-first century through exquisite illustrations, and will enchant children, as well as anyone who loves books.
