A Book By the Brook — Franklin’s Flying Bookshop

Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

— William Shakespeare

A Book by the Brook: Book Reviews at FriendlyFairyTales.com

A redhead, a dragon, kung fu-performing bats, and a flying bookshelf won my heart in Franklin’s Flying Bookshop by Jen Campbell, illustrated by Katie Harnett, Thames & Hudson, 2017. It could have been written for me, a red-haired, dragon-loving, book-devoted mom, but I imagine any kid who loves picture books will love the red-winged dragon with his interest in mouse ballet and bat martial arts who finds a kindred spirit on a walk in the woods.
