Book Review: Izzy and Frank

Izzy and Frank book review | Mum's Grapevine

Izzy & Frank
By Katrina Lehman & Sophie Beer

A touching story about a truly unique friendship.

When Izzy has to leave her lighthouse and island life to move to the city, she also has to say goodbye to her friend Frank the seagull. While adjusting to the crowds and the noise of the city, Izzy wonders if she’ll ever see Frank again. Brought to life with a unique Pantone colour palette and stunning illustrations by award-winner Sophie Beer, this whimsical tale shows us that the best friendships can weather the storm of separation.

“Izzy loved her island.
Her house had no corners and
a staircase that twirled high into the sky.
From her bedroom, she spied
dolphins diving and stingrays gliding.

She loved the wind that
whistled and wailed and
the waves that lapped at her feet.
But most of all, she loved Frank.”

A beautiful picture book, perfect for reminiscing about adventurous summer holidays or fun times with the family and getting excited about going back to school.
