Good Girl Gone Bad! An adorably dark picture book about the naughty midnight exploits of an impish litttle girl.

During the day, Frangoline's a perfect little angel. But in the darkest shadows of night, when all good children are sleeping tight, this little imp dons her jet-black cape and makes a break for it! Out the window, across the grass, screeching like a banshee, twirling like a dervish! The worried Moon looks down, warning, "Little ones should be in bed!"

"You can't tell me what to do. I'm Frangoline!" she says.

But when Frangoline's dancing antics wake the dead and they chase her to the tippy-top of the church steeple, how will she escape? And will she learn her lesson?

For every parent who has faced a fight at bedtime, and for every child just beginning to assert her independence, this is an adorably dark storybook about a (sweet but) wicked girl. The perfect rhyming Halloween read for all the little angels with a little devil inside!

Frangoline is the perfect child by day, but come nightfall, she becomes an unruly little minx, prancing through the night. FRANGOLINE AND THE MIDNIGHT DREAM is just right for kids who don't mind a bit of a fright right before bed.

Rebecca Elliott's adorably dark illustrations pair perfectly with Clemency Pearce's fantastically creepy rhymes. FRANGOLINE makes for a great Halloween read. Just creepy enough to awaken a young reader's goosebumps, but sweet enough to make little ones smile and giggle.
