The time will soon come when Frank Cottrell Boyce's children's titles have passed into the canon of the classics and we won't remember the days when he wasn't producing fabulous books. Hot on the heels of the announcement that his first book, Millions, has won the Carnegie, comes Framed, a book of wonderful originality and readability. a b Martin Wainwright (18 June 2012).

Pada suatu hari, banyak mobil yang naik ke atas gunung tersebut, dan menimbulkan kehebohan di kota kecil ini. Karena rumah si anak ini adalah rumah yang paling dekat dengan gunung, maka tetangganya berkumpul di rumahnya. Ternyata, mobil-mobil yang naik ke atas gunung itu, menyembunyikan koleksi lukisan yang sangat berharga. Nama-nama pelukis terkenal dan judul lukisannya jadi bertebaran di buku ini. In charge of this is Lester, an intelligent but uptight art curator who prefers paintings to people. That is, until a funny and pivotal misunderstanding leads him to invite Dylan to view the paintings inside the mountain. What ensues is good news for both Lester and the rather depressed town of Manod. Frank Cottrell-Boyce [1] (born 23 September 1959) [2] is an English screenwriter, novelist and occasional actor, known for his children's fiction and for his collaborations with film director Michael Winterbottom. He has achieved fame as the writer for the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony and for sequels to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car, a children's classic by Ian Fleming. [3] I love a story where you can't put a finger on who the best character is. Is it the two old ladies who live halfway up the mountain? One is blind and the other doesn't know how to drive. So the blind one drives and the other one steers. Or is it Dylan's Dad who can fix anything - even people? Nice Tom (formerly Daft Tom) who is obsessed with the Ninja Turtles? Dylan's little sister Minnie who loves bandits and reading about the guy who stole the Mona Lisa? I can't decide. I loved them all.

Manod develops an interest in art and Lester develops an interest in Manod, in the form of the lovely Angharad, the local school teacher. Through the transformative power of art, Manod starts to transform itself, beginning with the service station, where Mam and the children revive the flagging fortunes of the petrol station by broadening the services they offer into catering and a coffee bar. Paintings from the National Gallery Collection are integral to the novel 'Framed' by the award-winning author Frank Cottrell Boyce. George is a self-confessed social reject who spends more time with his Warhammer figures than actual people - but when he's given a bottle of aftershave called 'Desirable', women can't resist him! It follows Dylan the only male resident of the Welsh village of Manod and how the moving of paintings from the London's National Gallery into the quarry of the mountain in the town, leads to an attempted heist.

Lots of different ways but they've got one picture and it tells a story. And that's why I was particularly fascinated by the old lady because nobody knows what this story is. So she is the most interesting picture in the gallery to me because it's obviously full of story but I don't know what that story is and you can just make it up. The adorable narrator of this book is 9 year old Dylan from Wales. He's the ONLY boy in the small town of Manod so he has no one to play soccer with...a real bummer in a young English boy's life.

If you just sit down and think of the story you just have the story. But I think giving yourself some time not to think about it at all, just going shopping for lots of nice stuff to put in your book, that's probably the best way to work. Rory Rooney is unremarkable in almost everything, apart from his capacity to attract the attention of the school bully. But when he suddenly and spectacularly turns green, he becomes a superhero! And in 'Framed' the most important thing that happens isn't individual stories about the paintings but the fact that everybody in that town goes to look at the paintings together and they become closer to each other because they've all shared this little experience. In addition to original scripts, Cottrell Boyce has also adapted novels for the screen and written children's fiction, winning the 2004 Carnegie Medal for his debut, Millions, based on his own screenplay for the film of the same name. Frank's first book, Millions, won the CILIP Carnegie Medal in 2004 and has been shortlisted for a number of awards, including the Guardian Children's Fiction Award 2004. Millions has also been made into a movie directed by Danny Boyle. Frank's second novel, Framed, was published in September 2005 and shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, the Whitbread Award and the Guardian Prize. It was made into a BBC feature-length film in 2009. Frank's third novel, Cosmic, was published in June 2008. It was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize 2008 and the inaugural Roald Dahl Funny Prize.Interviewer: In 'Framed', National Gallery paintings have a large impact on the people of Manod. What do you think art is for? And the other thing is that where I live, I live on the beach near Liverpool, and someone installed a huge work of art on the beach. It was a very lonely, industrial beach, it's not attractive at all, it's just where the ships come in. And there is a promenade but it's quite wintery and windy and miserable. And someone put these statues on the beach – an artist called Antony Gormley – and since then it's been really busy and it's like there is a permanent festival going on. Pretty sure this is my favourite book of all time. Dylan (the main character) is so believable as a young boy, the voice is very accurate. The entire book is charming and funny, while also being quite thought-provoking and really sweet/heartfelt at times. Sometimes it makes me roll on the floor laughing and at other times I almost want to cry. All the characters are believable, and even the most ridiculous situations are rationalised in the mind of Dylan, allowing the reader to see through the eyes of this little kid and experience the wonder that comes with that.

In addition to original scripts, Cottrell-Boyce has also adapted novels for the screen and written children's fiction. His first novel Millions was based on his own screenplay for the film of the same name; it was published by Macmillan in 2004. Cottrell-Boyce won the annual Carnegie Medal from the British librarians, recognising it as the year's best children's book published in the U.K. [16] [17] His next novel Framed, he made the shortlist for both the Carnegie [18] and the Whitbread Children's Book Award. He adapted it as a screenplay for a 2009 BBC television film. He made the Carnegie shortlist again for Cosmic (2008). [18] In 2011, he was commissioned to write a sequel to the Ian Fleming children's book Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, [19] which was published in October 2011 as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again. [20] In addition to Coronation Street, he wrote many episodes of the soap opera Brookside, as well as its spin-offs Damon and Debbie and South.Resources Ltd, Higsons, Offices 1 and 2, 1A King Street, Farnworth, Bolton, Greater Manchester BL4 7AB. Dylan is an amazing character, and talks older than what he is, I was surprised when I found out how old he was...! The story centres on Dylan Hughes, the only boy left in a small Welsh mountain town called Manod. This is an immensely entertaining book, about the power of art to bring about change and to redeem. Framed was shortlisted for the Blue Peter Prize 2007 'The Book I Couldn't Put Down.' and shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal Frank Cottrell Boyce: The idea for the book 'Framed' came from two places really. One is: I was always interested in art robbery and I was on holiday in Scotland, when there was a very, very famous art robbery just by where I was staying.
