Summary

Three storybooks in one: Meet the lovable turtle who inspired the beloved Franklin and Friends TV show!Franklin in the Dark In the Franklin Classic Storybook that started it all, poor little Franklin has one of the most common childhood afflictions—he is afraid of the dark. This is particularly difficult for Franklin as he happens to be a turtle, and the darkness he fears is, of course, inside his own shell. Bravely, with shell in tow, he sets forth to seek help and in the course of his travels discovers a bird who is afraid of heights, a polar bear who is afraid of the cold, and even a hydrophobic duck. In the end, Franklin discovers that everybody, even his own mother, is afraid of something, and his response to what he has learned is guaranteed to draw a smile.Franklin Says I Love You In this Franklin Classic Storybook, our hero is a very lucky turtle. He has the best friends, the best little sister, the best goldfish, and, of course, the best mother. But when he discovers that his mother’s birthday is coming up, he can’t find the best present. After giving it some serious thought, Franklin decides to do everything for his mom. On the morning of her birthday he takes her breakfast in bed, makes a brooch, draws a picture, and cuts fresh flowers from the garden! And then Franklin gives his mom a great big hug and says, “I love you”—which is, of course, the best gift of all.Franklin and the Thunderstorm In this Franklin Classic Storybook, Franklin is afraid of thunderstorms. When a storm approaches while he is playing at Fox’s house, a flash of lightning sends Franklin into his shell. He refuses to come out—even for snacks—until his friends make him laugh with their tall tales about what causes storms. And when Beaver explains what really causes thunder and lightning, Franklin begins to feel much safer.

    From the acclaimed author of the Sebastian Darke thrillers and Crow Boy comes an exciting novel that teens and adults will enjoy. Fred, the old sheepdog of Morton's Farm, has a dream that something bad is coming ... but surely it can't mean Ralph, the orphaned puppy who arrives shortly afterwards? More likely, it has something to do with the mysterious black dog who arrives at the farm sometime later, heavily pregnant. When she gives birth to a large litter of doberman pups, young Ralph is appointed as their guardian. As the pups grow, under the leadership of the runt of the litter, Kurt, the dobermans begin to exert a malign and powerful influence over the farm and in particular, the chickens. Animal Factory is an intense allegory about the rise of Nazism and contains scenes which younger readers may find disturbing.

    Two best friends discover the joy of meeting someone new in the second book in this classic children’s series set in 1910 Minnesota. 
     
    Betsy and Tacy are best friends. Then Tib moves into the neighborhood and the three of them start to play together. The grown-ups think they will quarrel, but they don’t. Sometimes they quarrel with Betsy’s and Tacy’s bossy big sisters, but they never quarrel among themselves. 
     
    They are not as good as they might be. They cook up awful messes in the kitchen, throw mud on each other and pretend to be beggars, and cut off each other’s hair. But Betsy, Tacy, and Tib always manage to have a good time. 
     
    Ever since their first publication in the 1940s, the Betsy-Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers.
