    Aah, that’s just brilliant, well done Frankie. Ruby and I have loved reading it. Ruby says her favourite part is when Mrs. Nickit fell into the dustbin!

    My not-so-secret inner geek is cheering at the awesomeness of this! I’m desperate for my children to get to this age, just so I can do things like this with them!!!

    Brilliant! Made me wonder if there was some animation site that my 6 year old could do similar with, but then again, I do value the memory on my computer somewhat, so maybe not! πŸ˜€

    You know I think this is BRILLIANT don’t you. Meant to comment a couple of days ago, but was on my iphone….. and now I finally can. Just LOVE this storytelling. So clever!
