Book Review: Frankie Dupont and the Lemon Festival Fiasco

May 28

Frankie is at it again in Frankie Dupont and the The Lemon Festival Fiasco. Quick paced story jumps right into the action. The author, Julie Anne Grasso has crafted clever and quirky characters that kids will enjoy. In this episode Frankie starts by trying to find out who put poison in the lemon pie after the head master is unknowing given a piece of  the pie. Then, the lemon trees at Enderby Manor begin to die right before the Lemon Festival, putting the festival at risk.

Frankie with the help of his friends, Kat, Lachy and Frankie’s faithful dog gets  to the bottom of the mystery. Frankie uses clues, his investigative tools and skills he learned from his parents to find out who done it. Although, he does jump to a few wrong conclusions, the mystery keeps moving forward and keeps the young reader engaged. I’m not a fan of the artwork inside, but I think any middle grade reader (boy or girl) will enjoy this book.

    From one writer to another – you’re welcome. I appreciate all of the effort you put into Frankie!

  3. So glad you enjoyed Frankie #2, Sally! Very interesting that Julie decided to lead Frankie down the wrong path a few times. I like the idea of a fallible protagonist. Thanks for joining us in the Book Review Blitz and for sharing your review in the Kid Lit Blog Hop.
