      Surely that warrants a free book!

      I’ve just read Here Comes Frankie! to my 2 and a half year old and she immediately read it back to me! The eclectic illustrations, quirky layout and engaging story instantly captured not only my daughter’s imagination, but mine as well! Would love to own a copy of Thank You for Looking after our Pets. Tim Hopgood is clever and his books unusual, bright and uplifting :-)
