Kindergarten-Grade 2. Franklin the turtle is having a horrible day. He usually loves winter, but today he is grumpy, cranky, and unhappy. Bear and Franklin go out to play together, but nothing they do is fun. They miss their good friend Otter, who has moved away. When the pouting turtle returns home, he is angry and sad until his father suggests that he write or call Otter. Franklin spends the rest of the day making a scrapbook to send to her, full of drawings and a dozen self-addressed envelopes. This is a well-told story about overcoming a difficult situation. In the colorful cartoon illustrations, Franklin's facial expressions help to convey his changing moods and emotions, from frustration and sadness to satisfaction. Fans of Franklin's earlier adventures and children who have had a friend move away will enjoy this book.?Elisabeth Palmer Abarbanel, Los Angeles Public Library

The book is unforgettable because Franklin had a terrible day. He was playing with Bear. His day got better when he drew a picture of Bear and him playing. If you sometimes have a bad day, you will like this book. I liked it. Franklin had fun with Bear.
