This was truly a fantastic book to share with my daughter, she herself is adopted and it will provide her a fantastic message of belonging and fantasy in her life. A great story with a spunky heroine that we cant wait to continue to read about!

As a family we are enjoying this opportunity of sharing Frankie’s journey with our little girl, who is also adopted.
We can celebrate our children and highlight their individual qualities. All children are to be rewarded for their individuality.

Terrific empowering kids book. I have a young daughter and she devoured this beautifully illustrated and cleverly written book. It's for all kids who feel like they don't belong and discover that there is something truly special within them. Strongly recommend.
