Russell Hoban, an illustrator and would-be artist, was decorated for bravery against the Nazis. After returning to New York he found success with stories for children. He then moved to England and achieved cult status with his novel Riddley Walker. Hoban's current status as a novelist, hovering somewhere between a cult and a mainstream writer, is in contrast to his consistently elevated reputation as a writer for children. For a decade and a half before he published his first adult novel, and concurrently with his adult fiction ever since, Hoban has written children's books.

A Baby Sister for Frances. by Russell Hoban · Lillian Hoban Kleinzeit, Russell Hoban's second novel, is probably the funniest of his books.

Frances's new baby sister seems to have everyone's attention. No one has time for Frances, until one day she decides to do something about it.

"Well," said Frances, "things are not very good around here anymore. No clothes to wear. No raisins for the oatmeal. I think maybe I'll run away."

And she does, but not too far away. Just far enough so she can still hear her parents say how much she is missed.

This tender, realistic story about a familiar family situation has been a favorite with children everywhere. Now it is made even more special with Lillian Hoban's warm and inviting full-color illustrations, and readers of all ages will once again be entranced.

This is an ABRIDGED version - not the original book! But there's no way to know that unless you've just read the original. I happened to be replacing my old torn, vintage copies with newer, sturdier ones for my toddler and that's the only reason I noticed the omission of certain words and sentences. I was outraged! Why would you edit out part of a children's classic? It's a classic for a reason and it's not like the original is much longer or harder to read - it's not Shakespeare. Frankly, I was pretty turned off by all the heavy-handed "I can read! Level 2!" stuff splashed all over the book that emphasizes mastering an academic skill rather than enjoying a funny book. Way to turn off kids AND parents...even more so when the message is, "Learn to read - but not REAL books."

This book was a required book for my daughter at school. This week the class began to read it and she noticed that her words were not matching up with her teacher's or classmates' books. My wife and I then found in fine print inside the book that this was an abridged version. Who does this to a children's book!? At least they could have had the decency to point it out somewhere. Nobody asked for an abridged version.

My children love this book! (Girls aged 2,4, and 6). We have read a few of the Frances stories, but this seems to be a favorite. Picky eater Frances is given the opportunity to eat her favorite foods--bread and jam--for every meal. Of course, she discovers this to be monotonous and the story concludes with her eating with relish whatever her mother prepares. Simple story, pleasant illustrations, wholesome message.

We had originally checked this out from the library from their early reader section (as it says here on the product listing: I Can Read Book 2). However, this book turned out to be a different edition. It doesn't appear to be an I Can Read book at all, but instead is larger and quite a bit longer. This edition has a more complex vocabulary, including words such as "doily" that aren't included in the I Can Read edition. This is fine for us, but you might want to make sure you are getting the edition you want. (Attached photo shows absence of "I Can Read" logo.)

This was one of my favorite books when I was young, and I was happy to read the library's copy to my little ones. However, when I purchased this version on Amazon, it was not the same - they left out sentences here and there which, after reading the library's copy over and over and over, were sorely missed.

If you've never read this book before, this version may be ok. However, I'd recommend sticking with the original, unabridged edition. It's not much longer (maybe 1 or 2 pages total?) but is better with all the original text.

Another good one about picky eaters is the D.W. the Picky Eater in the Arthur series.

Siratius
this is an abridged version of this book it does not say so in the listing or on the cover. It is inside very small in the copyright information. very unhappy with it since it takes out the language.

I love Frances, that salty little badger. In this episode, Frances and her pal Albert have a shade war. Naturally everything turns out fine, and everyone learns some valuable lessons. Along the way, Frances treats us to her trademark silly songs and intricate moral conundrums. This one even has some light feminism!

We love Frances. She's fun. She makes up songs. She plays. I can actually remember some of the wandering days I did as a child and I think this is where I got the idea subconsciously. BUT.. I don't like how she calls him 'Mr Fat Albert' so I sorta edit that out. I don't want my child thinking that when you get upset, you call people names. Someday when she's reading herself, she'll know I did that. but at that point, we can discuss why it's sorta hurtful.

My 3 year old daughter and I both love the original "Best Friends for Frances" book that we borrowed from the library. We kept borrowing it so many times I thought it made sense to buy it. However, this version is edited to make it simpler for new readers and it loses some of the charm in translation. I highly recommend not getting the "I can read" version and just reading the book aloud to your child or waiting until he or she is older and can handle the real thing.
