Be careful what you wish for! Franky is a curious frog. He’s bored with eating insects all the time. He wants to try something new. While watching children have fun at the playground, Franky notices a recipe on top of the garbage bin. The recipe is for a human concoction known as a club sandwich. He decides he wants to try it, so he sets off to find the ingredients listed in the recipe: mayonnaise he finds in half-empty pouches in the garbage, bread and cheese he borrows from the mouse with the promise of sharing his finished creation, and the list goes on. Back home, Franky prepares the club sandwich, shares it with his friends and his parents, who appear to enjoy it. However, Franky does not. Mom to the rescue.

Charvi Kunal and Vedika Agrawal’s picture book story, Franky and the Club Sandwich, is a cute story that teaches young readers the valuable lessons of accepting one’s individuality, not wishing for something they cannot (and perhaps should not have) and being willing to share with friends. The story is told in simple language to appeal to young readers and it’s accompanied by charming, colorful illustrations that help move the story along. There is a suitable plot which unravels as Franky searches for the right ingredients to try the human concoction. The climax and resolution will make young readers chuckle as they learn along with Franky that frogs are frogs and eat frog food, while humans are humans and eat human food. We are, after all, what we eat.
