Meet Frank is a picture book about our unique and beautiful qualities. Frank is a curious little alien from the planet XOB, where everyone looks the same: same box shape, same green color, same googly eyes on stalks. Convinced there must be something more, Frank explores the universe and lands on Earth, where he befriends three little Earthlings who all look very different. By celebrating their unique qualities, they help Frank answer his questions about humankind's kaleidoscope of colors. Inspired, he returns to his home planet, determined to help his fellow beings explore and celebrate their differences too.
Mavis Lui (New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada) is a daughter of Chinese immigrants who grew up in Canada encountering racism and xenophobia. Now an elementary school teacher and mother of two young children, she believes the path to social harmony winds through early education and searches constantly for picture books that represent the diversity of her students. She has spent ten years creating Meet Frank to encourage young children, families, and teachers to explore skin tone and find themselves in the kaleidoscope of color.
