       A book review 

  Writer's Digest :

This book was so fun to read. Any child would love the strange day where everything is the opposite of what they would expect. By setting Frankie's day at the zoo, there are great opportunities to turn many animals' worlds upside down.
The author has a wonderful sense of humor and it comes out on nearly every page, either in the main text or in small antidotes peppering the illustrations. The illustrations are whimsical and entertaining. Also of benefit is the goldmine of material at the back of the book, providing interesting facts about zoo animals and giving a "behind-the-scenes" look at "the making of the book." Funny stuff.

Responses from Denise's School Visits:
"Denise came to speak to our students last spring.  She has a wonderful way of connecting with all ages from kindergarten through eighth grade.  The students loved meeting a real author!  Denise's presentation engaged the students in the fun story of Frankie, while encouraging them that they can write creatively, too.  Denise's energy and enthusiasm are contagious, and our students kept talking
about her and
Frankie for weeks!  We look forward to having her back."
Nanci Griffith, Principal, 
Polaris Christian Academy

"The kids will love the site to see their school and friends represented!!! Thank you so much.  It was such a great day and I've had
lots of positive feedback.
Again, thanks so much."

"Your presentation yesterday was awesome. We really appreciate the way you were willing to work with us on plot. We would recommend you for anybody who was looking for an author presentation. I loved the humor in your book and the way you reached a variety of readers with the style of the book. It isn't often that a book will work for several grade levels."

Karen Contner,
Reading Teacher, Indian Lake Elementary
