About this title:
The little hand is at 7.
It is seven o'clock.
It is bedtime for Frances.
It may be bedtime for Frances, but that does not mean Frances is ready to go to bed -- not by a long shot. First she must have a glass of milk and make certain Mother and Father have each kissed her good night (twice). Then she is ready to imagine there is a tiger in her room, and a giant, and.... Each time Frances thinks up something new, off she goes to tell her ever-patient, if increasingly weary, parents.
The familiar delaying tactics of Frances the song-singing badger have delighted fans young and old for over three decades. Combining sympathetic understanding with gentle humor, Russell Hoban created in Frances a character at once immediately recognizable and eminently likable. In this new edition, the warmth of full color enriches Garth Williams's original artwork, bringing a fresh look to an enduring favorite.
Product Description: Frances finds it difficult to go to sleep with the strange noises and menacing shapes that seem to fill her room after dark.
