The Frank Show

Publisher: HarperCollins

For 'Show and Tell', everyone has to talk about a member of their family for one minute and most of the class seem to have cool or interesting relatives to talk about - like Tom's drum-playing Uncle Marlon and Kristian's comedian dad.

Surely talking about your grandad can't compete with that? But surprisingly the class find Grandad Frank, with his memories of the old days and intolerance of all things modern, absolutely fascinating.   

Distinctive, witty illustrations bring this wise and heart-warming story to life. A clever and thoughtful picture book showing how much fun the older generation can be and the valuable contribution they can make to young lives.
