It’s time to step into a busy market.

Frank accompanies his mother to a bustling market for the first time. The baskets piled high with ripe fruits, the carts brimming with fresh vegetables, the scent of tangy spices in the air . . . Frank soaks it all in! 🥝🥕🌶

Unfortunately, he’s so absorbed in his new surroundings that he wanders off and finds himself lost. Poor Frank! 😰 Now he has to search for his mother among the countless stalls and throngs of people in the marketplace.

Follow Frank’s adventure to find out if he tracks Mama down!

This is a great book to talk about stepping out and being brave. It’s also an excellent way to introduce your child to a traditional vegetable market.

Trivia: The author once worked as a tour guide in a market just like the one in this book. The illustrator, who had a similar “lost and found” experience as a kid, sees the dog in this book as an angel watching over Frank.
