Frankie and Albertine

Written by Christine Davenier

Suitable for: 0-5 years

Available braille grades: Grade 1, Grade 2

Frankie the pig is desperate to impress Albertine, the hen of his dreams. Frankie gets advice from everyone, but will he ever get Albertine to notice him? Eventually, true love has its way, but only after a succession of entertaining antics.

Now in this picture, even though Frankie has four legs he is actually only standing on two of them, and do you know why? It's because he is dancing! I said he was a funny pig didn't I! He has his other two legs up in the air and his head thrown back, he looks like he is thoroughly enjoying himself. Now also in the picture there is a hen, and this is Albertine. Albertine has a long hard pointed beak, a small head which has a comb and wattles sticking out of it. Combs are bright red fleshy things that stick out of the top of a hen's heads like a hat.
