Synopsis

Standing in for Lincoln Green by David Mackintosh

What if you could have a handy stand-in to do all the things that you don't want to do? Lincoln Green has a double, someone who looks just like him, a match. SNAP! Lincoln's own mother can't tell the difference between him and...You Know Who. Which is great for Lincoln Green. He has much more important things to do than tidying up, putting away and sorting out, so they're all going on the list for his trusty stand-in. But Lincoln Green's not the only one who doesn't like doing things they don't like doing...It's not long before You Know Who has teamed up with Billy the Kid Next Door, which is a lot more fun than doing things for Lincoln Green, that's for sure. And that's when Lincoln Green finds himself in BIG trouble...!

Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE FRANK SHOW: The story delivers a positive message with subversive wit and charm - The Irish Times A quirky book that bridges the age gap - Junior Magazine Mackintosh's anarchic illustrations are hilarious but there's a serious point about how much the older generation has to offer children, including loads of fun. - The Herald Praise for MARSHALL ARMSTRONG IS NEW TO OUR SCHOOL: Utterly unpredictable from one page to the next, this is a seriously funny book. The Independent On Sunday I think this book is fantastic because I can read it myself and I love the pictures and the way it looks. The story is really, really good and fantastic because it's strange and weird. Child's review on the Guardian's children's book site.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
