‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)

Age Range: Under_5
Sam is crazy about robots and he’s sure they live on a faraway planet, the trouble is that no one believes him. One day Sam has had enough and he decides to create his own robot – Franky. They have such fun together as they play and explore together.
This is another wonderful creation from Belgian illustrator Leo Timmers. There is minimal text so it’s the stunning, vibrant illustrations that carry this story. The magnificent sequences of how Franky is created, the double-page spreads full of activity as they play robots every day and the full-page artwork of Franky or the massive spaceship full of robots are packed with so much quirky detail that children are sure to delight in pouring over.
Franky is the sixth book by Leo Timmers published in English by Gecko. Other titles include: Who’s Driving? (2006), I am the King (2007), The Magical World of Mr. Rennie (2012), Bang (2013) and Gus's Garage (2016).
