My Adventures With Frankie Pickle!

Last night we had a bonfire in our backyard.  It was the first one of the summer.  I was excited to make hotdogs and s'mores.  We even did a few giant sparklers and played football.

I wanted to take one of my favorite books outside and read.  I picked out Frankie Pickle and the Pine Run 3000 by Eric Wight.  Eric has two Frankie Pickle books right now and I have read both of them with my Dad. They are two of my favorite books ever.  Mr. Schu sent them to me after Eric visited his school.  They are signed by him too. 

When my Mom asked me what kind of treats I wanted for my birthday on April 29th, I told her Frankie Pickle cupcakes!  Brianna and my Mom made the coolest cupcakes.  Brianna even made green and purple jello jigglers that were cars just like what Frankie Pickle drove in the Pine Run 3000.  

My friends loved my treats and my birthday.  I did too.  It was fun celebrating in kindergarten with Frankie Pickle.  Miss McClintock, my teacher and cousin, read Frankie Pickle and the Pine Run 3000  to my class after that day.  They liked it and laughed a lot.  They asked me if my Mom had Frankie Pickle in the library.

I am really excited for Eric's new book Frankie Pickle and the Mathematical Menace to come out soon.

I am friends with Eric on Twitter.  It is so fun to talk to him about Frankie Pickle and places where I am reading and drawing this summer.  I want to grow up and draw stories just like him.

And the thing I like best about Frankie Pickle.....

He uses his imagination.

Just like me!


  1. Hagan, I love the fact that you had a book-inspired birthday party! You must have quite a library of signed copies by now. Some day, I hope to have one of YOUR autographed books on my shelf :-)

  2. Hi G G Ma,

    Thank you for reading about my bonfire and Frankie Pickle. I hope you can come someday to my house for one too. I do have a lot of signed books. My Mom and me are going to put them on a shelf of their own in my room. I hope I write a book someday too.

    Love, Hagan

  3. OK, Hagan, now I have a new book to read this summer. I don't know about Frankie Pickle. Are the books anything like Captain Underpants? Or Diary of a Wimpy Kid? I like those books. They are funny and they have pictures drawn to help tell the story, so I thought maybe they were similar.
