Mi vecino Frankie es un anciano que ha vivido muchas aventuras. Mamá dice que no debería hacerle mucho caso porque es un abuelo gruñón que ya no sabe lo que dice. Pero lo que mamá no sabe es que Frankie es el hombre más inteligente que conozco. Frankie ha viajado por medio mundo a pie y a caballo, en trenes y coches, en barcos y aviones. Hace mucho tiempo trabajaba en el circo, ¡y también en el teatro! Me encanta cuando se sienta y me cuenta todas sus historias y aventuras, ¡siempre me sorprende! Frankie tiene muchas mascotas: un perro, un gato, dos tortugas... ¡y un loro que habla! Incluso puede recitar poemas y pronunciar los trabalenguas más complicados sin cometer un solo error. Es cierto que a veces Frankie se enfada mucho con sus amigos animales, pero es una persona amable con un corazón gigante. Y lo más importante de todo: es mi amigo.

My neighbor Frankie is an old man who has lived many adventures. Mom says I shouldn't pay much attention to him because he's a grumpy grandfather who doesn't know what he's saying anymore. But what Mom doesn't know is that Frankie is the smartest man I know. Frankie has traveled across half the world on foot and by horse, in trains and cars, in boats and planes. A long time ago, he used to work in the circus, and also in the theater! I love when he sits down and tells me all his stories and adventures --he always amazes me! Frankie has a lot of pets: a dog, a cat, two turtles... and a talking parrot! He can even recite poems and pronounce the most complicated tongue twisters ever without making a single mistake. It is true that sometimes Frankie gets very angry with his animal friends, but he is a kind person with a giant heart. And most important of all: he is my friend.
