There's more to Frank than meets the eye...A quirky, witty and utterly brilliant new picture book from the creator of Marshall Armstrong is New to our School. Frank is your typical grandfather, but no one has a grandfather like him.... If you had to stand up and talk, for one whole minute, about a member of your family, who would you pick? Everyone else chooses really cool people, like Tom's Uncle Marlon who plays drums in a band, or Hannah's mum with her company car. But there's nothing cool about grandfather Frank... or is there? In this hilarious, wise and heart-warming story, awesome new picture book talent David Mackintosh shows with a supreme lightness of touch just how much the older generation has to teach us, and how much fun learning from them can be.

    " Frank reminds me of my grandpa, though I NEVER thought he was boring. And all my friends always wanted to meet him (some of them were even lucky enough to). This is the perfect book for any kid who might think their family members are boring and for those who know they aren't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 12/28/2013

    " Ah, yes, the challenge of Show and Tell about a person. And when that person is a grandpa, it's nerve-wracking because you think he may be boring. But that's because you haven't met Frank! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Neuwirth | 12/27/2013

    " A fun read! The illustrations are quite funny, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donalyn | 11/11/2013

    " Grandpa Frank is cranky and boring-- not the best subject for a school presentation. A young boy discovers secrets about his grandfather's past in this playful book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Candace | 10/29/2013

    " For some reason I just did not like this book. The cover was very catching my eye but I thought the pictures were busy and I did not like all the changing fonts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 8/30/2013

    " I love finding a new picture book author/illustrator to follow. Delightful! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 6/3/2013

    " i loved the ilustrations, and the message in the story more than the story itself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Khris Sellin | 3/15/2013

    " How could I resist this book? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TwoDrinks | 1/17/2013

    " Lovely illustrations. Story is about how everyone is interesting even though they might not at first appear to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 10/3/2012

    " 47 months - Not a fan of the illustration style. The story is unique but just didn't really grab us as a must read over and over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy) | 8/1/2012

    " A young boy needs to prepare a school presentation on a family member - is grandfather - Frank really that interesting? The book is funny just not sure kids will understand some of the intergenerational references. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie Gelson | 7/18/2012

    " Love this book. A fun, engaging read aloud. Kids really drawn to Mackintosh's style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 7/2/2012

    " There's a lot you don't know about your grandparents, youngsters! That's the gist of this quirky picture book. The illustrations are fun and the story has a great message about multi-generational relationships and mutual understanding, but I fear it may be lost on young readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 6/23/2012

    " A boy unhappily prepares for a show-and-tell presentation about his grandfather, Frank, who seems to be boring and grumpy, but he is in for a few surprises when the big day arrives. Great illustrations mixed in with collages "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Atkinson | 4/30/2012

    " I really liked this book, but think it would be a better shared one-on-one than shared in a group setting. "
