Birthday for Frances
Gloria's birthday is tomorrow, and Frances is not happy about it. Why is that your birthday is the one that is never now? Although she overcomes her jealousy and buys Gloria a present, will Frances's tummy talk Frances out of giving it to her?
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.
