Here Comes Frankie!

Written by Tim Hopgood

Here Comes Frankie! Synopsis

Frankie and his parents live a quiet life. Frankie's dad reads for hours in silence. His mum sits upstairs with the crossword. But when Frankie decides to learn the trumpet, everything begins to change. Not only can Frankie hear the sounds he makes - he can see and smell them too! And the more he plays, the more infectious his music becomes . . . A warm and uplifting story about family, noise and colour, featuring stunning artwork that will appeal to all ages. Here Comes Frankie! was the winner of the Booktrust Early Years Award for Best Emerging Illustrator and was shortlisted for the Hampshire Picture Book Award. This cheerful, funny book from Tim Hopgood, the award-winning author-illustrator of WOW! Said the Owl, is as fresh and original as when it was first published. The perfect book for any child who is learning a musical instrument or who loves to sing and dance.
