Comments for Happy Birthday Frankie

Happy Birthday FrankieHappy Birthday Frankie: 10/28/06

I bought Happy Birthday Frankie for Sean's first birthday. I remember liking the illustrations and the bold use of orange. It also had special meaning to me as it's obviously meant as a Halloween birthday book. The last period before I had conceived Sean had started on Halloween and the year before I conceived Sean, I had my first miscarriage on Halloween. As an odd bit of closure on this Halloween thing, I will officially "healed" from my c-section with Harriet this Halloween.

Sean enjoys the repetition of the story. On each page the scientist attempts to assemble the pieces in the box. He has many failures before he finally succeeds. The illustrations by Warren Linn really makes the book funny.
