The Cheltenham Literature Festival – 5th to 14th October 2018
Travel the world with Captain Frankie
13th January 2018
My First Travel Book by Anna Othitis – travel the world with Captain Frankie.
This slim volume caught my eye, aimed I imagine at 5-7 year olds and is designed to inspire a wonder of some of the world’s fantastic sights.
You are welcomed on board Angelic Airlines and looked after by Captain Frankie as he flies his plane to seven extraordinary wonders, both natural and man-made. There are several fun and interesting facts for each place visited and the flag of the applicable countries are illustrated.
This book is just made for every budding Andy or Dora the Explorer and might well sow the seeds for a bit of wanderlust in later years.
My slight quibble is the quality of the book. It is an overly soft, malleable product – reminiscent of an exercise book – with an easily-creased cover. It will inevitably be putty in the hands of smaller children and will therefore probably not last the journey (no pun intended!).
