Synopsis

Captain Frank and First Mate Tank are ready for another exciting adventure at sea!

Frank (an otter) and Tank (a hippopotamus) are best friends and captain and first mate of the tugboat Stinky Sue. And on their latest voyage, they discover an extra crewmate—a stowaway! Curtis hides aboard the tugboat during his class field trip. Good thing he does, because Frank and Tank need extra help when they are called to rescue a pirate ship. No boat too big, no boat too small, the Stinky Sue will save them all!

Frank and Tank: Stowaway is told through simple, declarative sentences with an emphasis on phonics, and colorful (and silly!) illustrations will delight newly emerging readers interested in adventure, the ocean, harbors, and friendship.

Frank and Tank: Stowaway is a Level 1 I Can Read book, which means it's perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.

Phonics teaches children the relationship between letters and the sounds they make. A child who has mastered these relationships has an excellent foundation for learning to read and spell. According to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a child who has learned phonics has a method to recognize familiar words and "decode" unfamiliar ones.
