Kid Lit Icon Franklin the Turtle Gets A Stamp Of Approval

Share |

Canada Post and Kids Can Press have teamed up to launch four new stamps depicting themes from Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark's Franklin the Turtle series.

The series started in 1986 with Franklin in the Dark and has since expanded into 100 different lighthearted tales that encourage children to step out of the shells.

These stamps are part of a series celebrating Canadian children's literature and Franklin is the first to be unveiled. That's right, there's more childhood favourites on the way!

Canada Post has also launched its Stamps Alive app. This gives users the opportunity to play a Franklin game by simply scanning the stamp package with an Apple or Android device.
