The Frank Frankie is about a nine-year-old schoolgirl who starts her own newspaper. But a newspaper needs news, so soon Frankie is spying on her neighbours and revealing family secrets in print! For ages seven and up.

It’s the end of year four and the start of the summer holidays. Nine-year-old Anne Googanstein (nicknamed Frankenstein by the horrible Rodney Picton, but Frankie to her friends) just wants to hang out with her best-friend-forever Billy Bloom. But boring Mr Grumble has given them a school project about what they want to be when they grow up.

When Frankie meets a real life journalist, she decides to write and distribute her own newspaper. But a newspaper needs news, so soon Frankie is revealing her family secrets in print to every house in the neighbourhood. However, thanks to her nose for news, she also saves the life of a neighbour, salvages the relationship between her mum and Greg Green, and discovers that some nincompoops make really good friends.
 

Excerpt
My name is Anne Googanstein, which is a positively unfortunate name to have, even without people like Rodney Picton in your class. Rodney imagines he is especially hilarious for having called me Frankenstein since we were in year two. I imagine he is especially a nincompoop.

My friends call me Frankie for short, which I actually-in-fact like better than Anne.
