Booklist Review

Ages 3^-5. Since Franklin became a television star, demand has steadily risen for books about the little turtle. This compendium includes four picture books, Franklin in the Dark (1986), Hurry Up, Franklin (1989), Franklin Fibs (1991), and Franklin Is Bossy (1993), in one cost-effective package. The size of the pages is a little larger than the standard Franklin format, allowing for wider margins of white around each page. An attractive choice for Franklin fans. --Carolyn Phelan
