Young Frank is an aspiring architect. He lives with his grandfather, Old Frank, who is also an architect, and his spotted dog, Eddie. Using anything he finds - macaroni, pillows, toilet paper, shoes - Young Frank likes to make buildings that twist, chairs with zigzag legs, and even entire cities. But Old Frank disapproves, saying architects only create buildings. One day they go to The Museum of Modern Art in New York City. There, they see work by two famous architects named Frank: Frank Gehry's cardboard wiggly chair and Frank Lloyd Wright's Broadacre City project, among other things. Old Frank sees that architects can do more than he thought they could. Together, Old Frank and Young Frank go home and create structures of every shape and size, "tall ones, squat ones, tubular ones, and just plain weird ones," using whatever they can get their hands on, even cookies! At the end of the day, Young Frank feels a little older, and Old Frank feels a little younger - and a little wiser.

In addition to illustrating eight New Yorker covers in the last two years, illustrator and designer Frank Viva has published two award winning and best-selling children's books. His picture book Along a Long Road, published by Little, Brown, was recognised as one of the New York Times' Ten Best Illustrated Books of 2011. Viva is also the founder and creative director of the branding and design agency Viva & Co., which has designed for clients such as Le Creuset, KRUPS, All Clad and The New York Public Library. He is a co-founder of Whigby, a stationery company whose products are sold at the MoMA Design Store, Paul Smith, Anthropologie and many other retailers.
