20th July Paulette Bourgeois (1951)
Canadian, Paulette Bourgeois is the author of the popular series of books about a turtle called Franklin. Franklin has all the fears and experiences that five year old children have and thus children like to read about him and laugh at him because he is a turtle and not a child like them. As Paulette's books need very little introduction and her website is extremely comprehensive, I do not feel the need to say much other than happy birthday and thank you for books that make the children I teach very happy.
