Young Frank, Architect

Young Frank Architect

Title: Young Frank Architect

Author: Frank Viva

Summary:

Budding architect, Young Frank, dreams of creating chairs, skyscrapers and cities a little differently than his seasoned, architect grandfather, Old Frank.  Young Frank uses all sorts of unique materials he can get his hands on: books, toilet paper rolls, macaroni, dishes and sometimes even his dog, Eddie!  Old Frank attempts to correct Young Frank, letting him know that architects do not build this way.  Discouraged, Young Frank accompanies Old Frank to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.  While exploring, they both learn that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and they both had something to learn.
