Teague, David. Kulikov, Boris.  Franklin’s Big Dreams, 40 pages.  Hyperion Book, 2010.  PICTURE BOOK.  $16.99.  Language- G; Sexual Content- G; Violence-G;  Inside book cover: “While Franklin is trying to sleep, a construction crew busts into his room.  They’re here to build a railroad. As soon as the tracks are laid, the train passes, and Franklin notices the passengers look oddly familiar…  Where are all these people going?  How do they get there so quickly? And why are they traveling through Franklin’s room?  Franklin is about to find out.”  We enjoyed this book!  The drawings are fantastic.  The boy’s dog is adorable!  My kids were entertained and held in suspense through the book.  We loved the ending of this great story.  EL (K-3)  ESSENTIAL.
