This hilarious offbeat picture book from the creator of Marshall Armstrong Is New to Our School reveals that there is to the older generation than meets the eye Grandpa Frank doesn’t have any interesting hobbies unless you count complaining about how everything was better in the old days He doesn’t speak Italian like Paolo’s mom or play the drums like Tom’s uncle He’s just a grandpa So when the young narrator of this story is forced to bring Frank to school for show and tell he’s sure it’s going to be a disaster But Frank has a trick make that a tattoo up his sleeve And a story to go with it After all the longer you’ve been around the time you’ve had for wild adventures Praise for The Frank Show STARRED REVIEWS“Mackintosh’s busy helter skelter images contribute mightily to the story’s humor and emotional honesty but it’s the willful personalities of both of these protagonists that make it stand out” Publishers Weekly starred Picture books about grandparents are hard to pull off there is a fine line between heartwarming and way too sentimental This one successfully avoids the latter it s fresh and funny

Read The Frank Show

Their grandparents have yet to reveal about their own life stories BookPageThe cartoon illustrations are very funny Frank’s oversize glasses with a missing right temple enhance the mood A sweet story that proves that elderly relatives can be cool after all School Library JournalAs a lover of vintage and vintage inspired children’s books I was instantly enad with The Frank Show by British illustrator and designer David Mackintosh a charming homage to grandparents and the art of seeing beneath the grumpy exterior Brain PickingsThe art is appealing as well; digitally created scenes pulls together planes of vivid color a multitude of small elements outlined in black scrawls and elements of collage The Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksReminding readers that everyone has a story to tell this picture book is fun to read while providing insight into human character Reading Today Online Awards GOLD Parents' Choice Award Winner Picture Books Grandpa Frank is just a grandpa and he doesn t seem to like anything except pickled onions so how could his grandson possibly talk for a whole minute about him in front of his entire classIn The Frank Show by David Mackintosh Frank s grandson is nervous about presenting about his curmudgeon grandfather during show and tell Especially since his friends have exciting people to introduce like Fay s cousin who tells you if your bag is too heavy at the airport and Hugo s stepbrother who s sports car has an eight ball gearshift knobThe Frank Show is the perfect example of a picture book that seems to have been written for adults than for kids I see the jokes flying right over younger kid s heads and not many children are going to spot Edgar Allen Poe and his raven in the illustrations But that doesn t mean that I don t recommend this book because it is fantastic Mackintosh s illustrations are funny and child like filled with subtle references and jokes This story is as much about the generational divide as it is about taking people for granted both topics rarely explored in picture books Grandpa Frank s exaggerated stories and cranky advise are entertaining and his grandson s fears are completely understandable Seriously pick up this book You won t be disappointed unless you re Frank I m sure he d say that they don t make them like they used to or something as eually crotchety
