It’s time for bed, yet Frankie’s imagination is running wild. His mom says “Good Night” and Frankie’s mind starts to race. Was that a robot creaking? He goes to the basement and then he thinks it’s a dinosaur scratching. He continues to hear scary noises and runs into his mom’s room.
His mom praises Frankie’s imagination but she explains all the noises he is hearing including car alarms outside, the washing machine, and the ice maker in the fridge. But, because he has such a vivid imagination, someday, he will be able to use that imagination for good things.
The colors and illustrations give the pages a scary feeling, but as you work through the book, the colors become more bright and vivid. Frankie and his mom have a special relationship and it shows on the pages in their expressions.
For kids that have trouble with bedtime fears or even big-world fears, this is a book to help explain them away and offer a way to see things differently.
There is no doubt Mathew Franklin is an artist by looking at his illustrations. He is a tattoo artist, painter, graphic designer, and a musician. This is his first book and let’s hope there is more to come!
