#blogbookaday: Franky

21 Mar

28006771.jpgSummary:  “Sam loves robots. He is certain they live in outer space among the stars. His family laughs at him, and no one seems to understand. No one except for Franky, that is…” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Sam knows that robots live in outer space, but his family won’t believe him, so he builds his own robot in the hopes drawing the robots to his house. Franky and Sam play every day, until one day Franky doesn’t move from the window all day. And all of sudden… “They’re HERE!”
Personal Reaction: I love Leo Timmers distinct illustration style and his intricate robots and space ships are perfect to share this story. I also liked seeing Sam use all sorts of day-to-day items to create this really awesome robot and then how he uses boring cardboard boxes to hide Franky from his parents. Timmers’ work always requires the reader to take some time to make sure you catch everything in the illustration, which in my opinion, is always fun.

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
