Frankie Armadillo has had enough of his cramped living quarters and sneaks off into the night. Determined to find the perfect home he treks from place to place. Starting out in a hole beneath a house, to tunnels beneath trees, to deserted barns, and more; no place meets his expectations. Scared, hungry, and cold Frankie Armadillo continues his quest for what he believes will be the perfect home.
Will Frankie realize that “there is no place like home?” or will he find a place to call his own?
“Frankie rested for a minute. “I can’t give up now, I need a place to sleep.” So he lifted his chin, slipped out of the log, and stepped into the softest soil that squeezed right through his toes.”
Journey along with Frankie Armadillo on an adventure like non-other and discover what Frankie comes across and learns what he knew all along.
Beverly Stowe McClure brings to life the world of Frankie Armadillo in a delightful imaginary way that the reader almost forgets Frankie is not human. Frankie’s Perfect Home is sure to be a wonderful addition to your home or school library for the youngest of children.
