Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Frank goes one way after school and everyone else goes another. It seems like he is always on the outside looking in until one day he decides to take matters into his own hands. Soft-hued color blocks and shifting shadows surround Frank as he prepares a teatime picnic using some unusual, heartfelt ingredients. The book is eloquent yet playful with an emotionally charged message, and audiences will root for Frank as he takes a risk, sharing pieces of himself. --Foreword Reviews --Website
