Book Review- Frankie and Albertine

Remember this one Kylie?

Frankie and Albertine
Christine Davenier

Frankie the pig had never felt so low. He had fallen in love.
Albertine was the hen of his dreams- but she had never noticed him!
What shall I do? Frankie wondered.
He decided to ask his friends.

When Frankie falls in love with the beautiful hen of his dreams, Albertine, he is convinced he must impress her.
Unsure of what to do, he goes about the farmyard in search of advice.
‘Dance for her,’ says the rabbit.
‘Strut your stuff,’ advises the turkey.
‘Sings to her,’ the rooster informs him.
It seems that whenever Frankie does as his friends suggest, he makes a mess of it. Will Frankie be able to impress Albertine?
Children eight and under will enjoy this well-written story with it’s beautiful colour pictures.
