Best Friends for Frances
Little sister Gloria wants to play with Frances, but Frances tells her she is too little and goes to her friend Albert's. At Albert's, Frances experiences the same brush-off she gave her sister, and returns home to play with Gloria. Will they find a way to end the clique-iness so they can all play together?
Possibly the most loveable badger in children's literature, Frances is somehow funny and opinionated yet naive as she experiences many of the same "bumps in the road" as many young children. You just can't help grinning as Frances runs "away" after the arrival of a baby sister, makes a trade with a crafty friend, and decides that bread and jam make the best meal of all. 32 pgs, pb unless otherwise noted. Please note that A Bargain for Frances is now only available in an "I Can Read" version which is slightly abridged and smaller-format.
