Consideration of rural development reforms in the Agriculture Regulatory Relief and Trade Act of 1995
When a prank in a final school assembly goes incredibly well, but results in an incredible but funny at the time wrong, the boys are banned from seeing each other in the school holidays. But can they stand each other long enough to put the past back together again? But after a teensy tiny prank goes wrong at school, Frankie is packed off to Old-People Jail for the whole holidays. Twelve-year-old Frankie Fish hates visiting his grandparents.
There were some pretty cool illustrations in the novel.
What I like most about this book is the fact that it explores time travel in good and bad ways. Sure, his nan is nice and all, but his grandad is super grumpy -- and has a creepy hook for a hand. Even though I just started the book a week ago, it is a spectacular book.
There appears to be an indication that in order to understand Frankie's so-call This Frankie Fish and the Sonic Suitcase have been a good kid's book but the reason I have not rated it more highly is because somehow authors who write books for kids think that you've got to have it full of toilet talk, mild swearing or even a hint of blasphemy to make a "good" story.
The kids shared a bedroom and I read a chapter of Frankie Fish to them on our arrival. Yes, Peter Helliar wrote this a couple of years ago.
Frankie Fish and the Sonic Suitcase is available at all good bookshops. The characters were fleshed out so you really got involved in their story. Inside the suitcase, Frankie finds a computer… sort of. Somehow, everyone is gone but Frankie and Grandad! He will be spending the summer at his grandparents in what he dubs old people jail.
A partial client list includes Sterling, Hardie Grant, Oxford, Usborne, Simon and Schuster and Macmillan. And even if they manage the impossible — will Grandad's wonky time-machine ever get them home? The boys loved Frankie Fish right from the beginning and so did I.
He climbed over our side gate and knocked on the front door. He lives in Melbourne with his wife and three kids, and currently co-hosts the award-winning news and current affairs program The Project on Network Ten. I am fascinated on how the story is going so far. Nana fell for it hook, line and sinker!
Overall I would highly recommend this book to all ages.
