    • I caved. I read it immediately. Please buy this for yourself and for smaller humans who don't yet have money.


    • Love, love, loved this. Franklin's Flying Bookshop tells of a dragon (Franklin) who loves books and reading to people but sadly people don't often love him. That is until he meets a young girl called Luna and the best bookish friendship begins Adorable story from Jen Campbell stunningly illustrated by Katie Harnett. I've already re-read it twice, once to my beloved who also loved it.


    • ‪My 8 year old nephew read this to me tonight. At the end he said "Can we read it again tomorrow?" Enough said. The art is amazing!!


    • BookTube-A-Thon Book 5: Read a hyped book. N.B. This wasn't my planned hyped book, but hey ho - I decided to switch things up!This was an extra, surprise book I received during the BookTube-A-Thon, and I read it in a matter of minutes. I don't normally read picture books, but this one was a treat - a really sweet story with a loveable dragon, tonnes of books, and beautiful illustrations. The book as an object alone is a thing of beauty. Great for goods, and fantastic if you love happy, pretty th [...]


    • Each year my family reads all the -award-nominated picture books. Everyone rates each book and adds a comment and it may (or may not) affect my overall rating. This is book #20 (and the last of 20!) of 2017.Tara: (2 stars). It didn't rhyme and then did and then once in a while. It had cadence and then it didn't. I didn't like that.Harry (13): (2.5 stars). I didn't really get it, but I liked the art.Hank (11): (5 stars). Cool! Liked almost everything about it!Lyra (10): (5 stars). Humans hated Fr [...]


    • A delightful story with beautiful, vivid illustrations. I can't wait to read the further adventures of Franklin!


    • * I was sent this for free by the publisher *This book has been one I've been waiting for for quite some time. It's by the lovely Jen Campbell and illustrated by the EQUALLY talented Katie Harnett. We follow the adventures of a dragon (already the best character you can choose) and a young girl who try to set up a bookshop on Franklin's back. It's quite a lovely tale, and filled with added delights of colour, form and beauty. The words and images compliment one another beautifully, and I know al [...]


    • I bought this as a gift for a 3 year old and had to read it before I wrapped it up. So lovely in particularly the illustrations, I love how the artist plays with light and shade and shapes the pages. I am sure the 3 year old will love this.


    • Franklin's Flying Bookshop was a delightful tale about the little girl Luna who meets the bookworm (or should I say: bookdragon) Franklin. Together they open up a bookshop on Franklin's back. Between his wings countless books are stored for people to peruse and gaze at. Visitors may get comfy on one of the over large sofas as Franklin takes them on a trip through the sky. Sounds marvellous? I agree, I want to visit that bookshop as well. :> To be honest, I wasn't the biggest fan of the writin [...]


    • Honestly just wonderful. Pure concentrated comfort in this lovely story about friendship, acceptance (and lack of), and love of reading. I was sure I'd like it but I really did love it - felt like exactly what I needed to read in that moment and I know I'll be reading again.


    • Cute illustrations, massive size (so you can bask in the gloriousness of them), a bookish dragon that longs to share the love of reading and a wonderful young girl that believes in said dragon, what else do you need? It made me smile and enjoy myself as if I was a child. (I need the flying bookshop to come visit me please).



    • This book is so sweet and going to my nephew and nieces.Jen Campbell's magical story of Franklin the dragon, who has a love of all things books and just wants a friend to tell stories too. He finds Luna, the little girl who sees him as a fellow story teller and together they make a library.Beautifully illustrated by Katie Harnett, there is plenty to seek out in the pictures and a magical story to ride away with. Adorable.


    • I don't tend to put the books I read to my nephew on here but I wished to share my thoughts. This is the first new book I've bought for him as I work at a charity shop so come across brilliant second hand children's books quite cheaply. When he opened the package he exclaimed, 'That's a great dragon!' And thus begun my Sunday reading. I read this book four times, and it is one of the few times my nephew has really responded to a books, joining in to shout, 'What are you?' with characters, and as [...]


    • So one of my reading goals this year is to learn about certain illustrators and really “study” and appreciate artists with pictures and words. I’m so happy “Franklin’s Flying Bookshop” was my first by the lovely Jen Campbell (who I watch on YouTube religiously)! Franklin the dragon loves stories and loves reading stories to people too, but everyone is too scared to even talk to him. One day, he meets a girl named Luna who, rather than being afraid, is fascinated to meet Franklin, hav [...]


    • What an absolutely charming book! I had to read it immediately when it arrived and then I read it to the hubby and he loved it too. The story was whimsical and endearing, the illustrations were beautiful. A book that must be read by all!


    • I've been watching Jen's youtube videos for 2 1/2 years now and she's easily one of my favourite channels. So thoughtful and eloquent, honestly such a gem. While I've been excited about this book for a while now and enjoying hearing anything she managed to share about it, it blew away my expectations. It was perfect. I smiled ear to ear throughout the whole reading experience. Really wish I had a little one to read this with (thankfully I have a beautiful copy of my own so I can wait)! Cannot re [...]


    • I feel like I've been waiting for this book to be released forever! I was so very excited to receive it in the post today. Franklin's Flying Bookshop is just beautiful, both the words and the illustrations. It's a gorgeous story of friendship and acceptance and the love of books. I'd recommend it to children and adults alike and I'm looking forward to going on more adventures with Franklin and Luna in the future.


    • Fabulous, Fantastic and Fun! Franklin is wonderful!What better mix can you get in a story than one of a Dragon who loves books?! He tries to share his love of books with others, but they aren't as receptive as he's a dragon! That is until he finds the delightful Luna who shares his passion and they set out to spread the bookish love!Beautifully illustrated and perfect for children whether they be little or big I'm in the 'big child' category and can't wait to read it all over again!!


    • Franklin was delivered to me as I was in the middle of a mild panic attack and It seems to me Franklin’s read lots of psychology books because he sure made me feel tones better. This story is so modern with the (SPOILERS)Kung fu bats and the mice band with their cute sunglasses but there’s something ancient about it too. The theme of being judged by how you look. The villagers who fear the unknown and refuse to show any desire to know the unknown when it presents itself. The panel where Luna [...]






    • “When the sun goes down, Franklin reads by the light of a thousand fireflies (because fireflies like to hear stories too). But if it’s a warm night, he spreads his wings and flies into the sky to read by the light of the moon.”


    • What a wonderful story. How I would've loved to read it to little me. A book about bookish dragons and bookish girls (with red hair?! like mine?!). Harnett's illustrations are lovely -- a very nice, rich colour palette with enough simple shapes to be easily translated by a young visual mind. They are detailed and yet somehow sparse, and I really enjoyed her bold use of reds and greens and blues. Her personality as an illustrator really came through. Campbell's writing is as warm and as sweet as [...]


    • Cool story bro, needs more dragonstually wait, this story is about a dragon! Cool story bro! Haha Franklin the dragon isn’t the only magical thing about this story. There’s something whimsical about the writing. It’s sweet and lyrical without being too matchy and poetic. At first glance the book is unusually large and hard for mummy to hold, but it worked out well reading it on mummy’s lap because my whole view was obscured by the pictures. It was like going to a drive in cinema! I would [...]


    • Beautiful illustrations!Adorable Story!Can I also be friends with Franklin please, and fly together reading books from his library?


    • A brilliant, absolutely beautiful and heartwarming book! Please buy it for yourselves and your little ones! You'll fall head over heels in love with it, I'm quite certain.
