Franklin and Luna and the Book of Fairy Tales
A new adventure where Franklin and Luna follow their friend the tortoise into a dusty fairy-tale kingdom. Who will they meet there?
Franklin and Luna are back again and this time it’s Franklin’s birthday! Luna and all the villagers are planning a surprise party. While the party is being set up, Luna takes Franklin book shopping, and Luna’s tortoise, Neil, finds a padlocked book of fairy tales and can’t help picking the lock. But when he peers inside, the book swallows him whole! Franklin and Luna dive into the book to rescue Neil and tumble into a cobwebbed forest where they meet dusty fairy-tale characters who have been trapped inside the pages for hundreds of years.
In this new Franklin and Luna adventure, the adorable duo meet three pig architects, a wolf with a New Age attitude, and a very bored princess. Desperate to be brought to life, these fairy-tale characters join Franklin and Luna on their hunt for Neil, realizing that the only way to escape the book is to trek all the way through it. Find out if Franklin and Luna find Neil and make it back in time for Franklin’s party in this exciting, new, picture-book adventure.
In the third volume of the Franklin and Luna series, well-loved fairy-tale characters are vividly and wittily recreated to great effect.
Praise For Franklin and Luna and the Book of Fairy Tales…
— Kirkus Reviews
This rhyming adventure features a fearless redheaded heroine who encounters three little pigs, a boy who has sold his cow for magic beans, a yawning princess with some peas—the characters of your favorite fairy tales. How easy it is, this funny story shows, to get lost in a book.
