I found this book by chance at the library. The art amazing, subtly expressive - I'm not even sure how to describe it, I just know it's great. The writing is superb, tinged with human emotion and comedic moments...at first it seems to be a story that you've read before...but Modan works the issues of Isreal works underneath the surface. Exposing our casualty with death and war. A great read.
Frannie Miller loves grown up things, words, and jobs. She wants to impress everyone. But, when her over zealous desire to be 'grown-up' gets her into BIG trouble, she doesn't quite know how to make it all better. The whole class is invited to a real live radio station...yet, Frannie already messed up during a field trip to Cambridge Magazine. Will her teacher, Mrs. Pellington say she can't go to the radio statio?. She gives her one more chance. But,you guessed it,yet again, Frannie messes up. She takes over the Mr. Sanders talk show and tells the whole town that voting for the mayor is in the next town. Yikes! Loveable, yet utterly clueless, Frannie is part Eloise, Gooney Bird Greene, and Ramona. Who wouldn't love her? She loves to make up her own big words, that tickle our funny bone. Full of expressive illustrations, although sadly they are in black and white...they add visual interest to an already utterly hilarious story.
My review is on my blog at: http://vampirekiss1967.blogspot.com/ I give this book 4.5 stars out of 5.
