About the Author and Illustrator

Paulette Bourgeois When asked what she hopes children will learn from her books, Paulette Bourgeois explains: “It is most important to look for the wonder in ordinary things.” Some of this wonder, and a curious anxiety, spill over into her character Franklin. The world's best-loved turtle overcomes the challenges of the everyday life of a five-year-old in a way that resonates with children.
