‘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)
by Catarina Kruusval
Age Range: Under_5
Franny and her seven friends are going on an outing. There’s Dashie Doggie, Barry Bear, Ginger Giraffe, Croakie Crow, Honey Bunny, Little Heddy Hedgehog and Itty Bitty Kitty. After a short walk Franny finds the ideal picnic spot under a tree. The trouble is that Franny has so many friends to keep track of that she manages to lose Itty Bitty Kitty and Little Heddy. Where can they have got to?
This simple story by Catarina Kruusval provides a light-hearted lesson in the responsibilities of friendship and the line and watercolour illustrations of a little girl as she takes her toy animals out to play are charming.
