In the Franklin Classic Storybook that started it all, poor little Franklin has one of the most common childhood afflictions he is afraid of the dark. This is particularly distressing for Franklin as he happens to be a turtle, and the darkness he fears is, of course, inside his own shell. Bravely, with shell in tow, he sets forth to seek help and in the course of his travels discovers a bird who is afraid of heights, a polar bear who is afraid of the cold, and even a hydrophobic duck. In the end, Franklin discovers that everybody is afraid of something, even his own mother, and his response to what he has learned is guaranteed to draw a smile.

Paulette Bourgeois is the author of more than 40 books for children, including the In My Neighborhood series and Oma’s Quilt. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Brenda Clark is best known as the illustrator of the original Franklin the Turtle series written by Paulette Bourgeois. Other popular titles she has illustrated include Sadie and the Snowman, Big Sarah’s Little Boots, and the award winning, Little Fingerling. Brenda lives in Port Hope, Ontario.
