Frangoline and the Midnight Dream

Good Girl Gone Bad!

Written by Clemency Pearce, Illustrated by Rebecca Elliott

This is a really cute book written in the style of Dr. Suess. When you read it, it sounds like a song. It is definitely easy for a beginning reader to read. Frangoline is a really cute, really bright, and clean girl who takes trips in her dreams. In her dreams she becomes a completely different little girl who does exactly what she pleases, screaming and blowing rasberries at everyone who tries to tell her what to do. I really like this book. It will be very popular all year but I think it will be most popular at Halloween.

Good Girl Gone Bad! An adorably dark picture book about the naughty midnight exploits of an impish litttle girl.
During the day, Frangoline’s a perfect little angel. But in the darkest shadows of night, when all good children are sleeping tight, this little imp dons her jet-black cape and makes a break for it! Out the window, across the grass, screeching like a banshee, twirling like a dervish! The worried Moon looks down, warning, “Little ones should be in bed!”

“You can’t tell me what to do. I’m Frangoline!” she says.

But when Frangoline’s dancing antics wake the dead and they chase her to the tippy-top of the church steeple, how will she escape? And will she learn her lesson?

For every parent who has faced a fight at bedtime, and for every child just beginning to assert her independence, this is an adorably dark storybook about a (sweet but) wicked girl. The perfect rhyming Halloween read for all the little angels with a little devil inside!
