Franklin is a bibliophile who wants to share his love fore reading with everyone in town! Alas, they are scared of him - this big, scaly, green monster who always seems to have a book in his hand. Why is he trying to share his love of literature??
Then, he meets Luna, a kindred spirit who assures Franklin that he is worthy of love. They proceed to set up a bookshop on Franklin's back and spread the love of books with all the townspeople as Luna advocates for Franklin. The illustrations are full of magic and the story is just as heartwarming.— Christy
A magical story about a little girl and a dragon who dream up a plan to share their love of books and stories
Franklin the dragon loves stories and loves reading stories to people too, but everyone is too scared to even talk to him. One day, he meets a girl named Luna who, rather than being afraid, is fascinated to meet Franklin, having recently read all about dragons in one of her books. They instantly become friends and talk nonstop about what they’ve read: books about roller-skating, King Arthur, spiders, and how to do kung fu. Together they hatch a plan to share their love of books with others by opening a bookshop—a flying bookshop, that is—right on Franklin’s back!
Franklin, a well-read and peace-loving dragon, and Luna, a young girl with an independent spirit and an insatiable love of reading, make fantastic role models for young children. Franklin’s Flying Bookshop brings the magic of classic fairy tales into the twenty-first century through exquisite illustrations, and will enchant children as well as anyone who loves books.
