    Inhaltsangabe

    There’s more to Frank than meets the eye…A quirky, witty and utterly brilliant new picture book from the creator of Marshall Armstrong is New to our School. Frank is your typical grandfather, but no one has a grandfather like him…. If you had to stand up and talk, for one whole minute, about a member of your family, who would you pick? Everyone else chooses really cool people, like Tom’s Uncle Marlon who plays drums in a band, or Hannah’s mum with her company car. But there’s nothing cool about grandfather Frank… or is there? In this hilarious, wise and heart-warming story, awesome new picture book talent David Mackintosh shows with a supreme lightness of touch just how much the older generation has to teach us, and how much fun learning from them can be.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “…features a wonderfully eccentric title character. Utterly unpredictable from one page to the next, this is a seriously funny book.” (The Independent on Sunday)
    “A sophisticated combination of faux-naïve pencil drawing, collage and varied layouts makes David Mackintosh’s Marshall Armstrong is New to Our School striking.” (Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times Culture)
    “…a beautifully illustrated first book from the writer and illustrator David Mackintosh.” (Daisy Bridgewater, Telegraph Magazine)
    “Even very young readers will … enjoy how Mackintosh’s beautifully underplayed text and genial drawings manage to be empathic to both the leery narrator and the serenely outré object of his misapprehension. Without a whiff of pedantry, Mackintosh skillfully dismantles the narrator’s defenses and bonds him to Marshall Armstrong, all the while proving that fun doesn’t always fit within the confines of one’s comfort zone.” (Publishers Weekly)
    “I think this book is fantastic because I can read it myself and I love the pictures and the way it looks. The story is really, really good and fantastic because it's strange and weird.” (Child’s review on the Guardian’s children’s book site.)
