Frankfurt is – well yes, a “sausage” dog, or rather a Daschund. He lives with Pierre in a small flat ant the top of a tall building. Frankfurt loves Pierre and loves his life except there is one problem; his name. Can Frankfurt make Pierre realise how much he hates his name?
Bold, simple colours combine with bold geometric shapes to evoke the continental atmosphere of this gentle story of friendship and a problem solved. Frankfurt is a little dog with a real character and young readers will find it easy to sympathise with his predicament; many may indeed recognise the situation. The careful design is not confined to the illustration alone. The text is carefully placed on each page and presented in a clear, well sized font that ensures it is a pleasure to read. No tricks, just an enjoyable story.
