Frank and Bean

author: Jamie Michalak
illustrator: Bob Kolar

series name:
Candlewick Sparks

Frank likes peace and quiet. He likes his tent, his pencil, and writing in his secret notebook. Bean likes noise. He likes his bus, his trumpet, and making music. Loud music. But Bean is missing something: he does not have words. What will happen if Frank shares his words with Bean? With a laugh-out-loud narrative by Jamie Michalak, author of the Joe and Sparky series, and Bob Kolar’s bright, graphic, comical illustrations, this fresh and funny story will go down easy for beginning readers and young listeners alike.

“An engaging and humorous tale of two friends whose personality differences lead to growth as well as some fun adventures.” —School Library Journal
