Meet Frank. Frank knows that honesty is the best policy. But sometimes Frank is a little too frank. Being Frank is a hilarious book all about balancing honesty with social grace. Our friend Frank, being a truthful young man, doesn’t hesitate to let his principal know that his toupee looks like a pet weasel, or to inform his mother that her face has a few wrinkles. Strangely, Frank’s family and friends do not always appreciate his candor! Luckily Grandpa Ernest is there to give Frank a much needed lesson about tact. Lying is wrong. But the truth doesn’t have to hurt! With Grandpa Ernest’s help, Frank learns how to express himself in a positive way. For instance, maybe Mrs. Peacock’s hat isn’t weird, maybe it’s one-of-a-kind!
Being Frank is laugh-out-loud funny and reminds us that a little consideration goes a long way.
