Title: Franklin's Flying Bookshop

Comments: I love this book! Open it up and you will find yourself immersed in a beautiful world, filled with gentle rhymes, silly antics, honest musings, and a sweet love of stories!

For anyone who's ever felt misunderstood (like poor Franklin) or anyone who's ever felt brave enough to stand up for their friends (like Luna), this one's for you!

The PERFECT treasure to gift to a little one's growing library.

— From Zazu


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.
