Helene Barr Chipman

Frank and Bean

Helene was inspired by her love of animals and her grandchildren to write her first children’s book, “Frank and Bean”.  It is the story of two dogs and the child who loved them. Frank came from an Animal Shelter and found love and friendship in his new home.  Helene resides in Virginia and likes to split her time between family at home and friends in Naples, Florida, her home away from home


Frank and Bean

What type of dog does a couple get that likes frankfurters and beans?  A Dachshund of course!  The Daniel family decide to get a dog, Bean, But that’s just the beginning of their little family!  When Bean gets lonely, a trip to the shelter adds Frank.  And when you mix in the squirmy bundle they bring home from the hospital, Collin, the real fun begins!  It’s a heart-warming ‘tail’ you’re sure to love as you get to know this family’s life with dogs, and the child who loved them.
