Wonderful children's book

I met Belden at a book convention in 1988 (I was 11), and I don't know why I picked this book of all the ones there, but I simply loved it, and cherish it as one of the best reads of my childhood. Just a delight.

A charming book

Though it's been 5 years since I last read this book, it made a major impact on me. I was in fourth grade when I read (and reread!) Frankie, and it was my favorite book that year. The black and white illustrations are beautiful, and the story was delightful. The characters were interesting, as was the world, and I rooted for the main character with every challange she faced. At the same time, it was not frightening, nor violent (to my recolection). I would highly recommend this book for any child who seems interested in fantasy.

I remember this story

Mrs.Belden was my 4th grade teacher at Bird Rock. I remember her reading us many great stories. I can recall being read one of her own books. I am not sure if it is this book or her first, but it was a great book. Her incorporation of literature in the class was very influential. Now that I am a third grade teacher, I am really looking forward to reading her story in my own class. Mrs.Belden where are you?
