Publishers Little Brown say the first installment in the series, Frankie versus the Pirate Pillagers, will hit bookshops in June this year.
Two more titles, Frankie versus the Rowdy Romans and Frankie versus the Mummy’s Menace are scheduled for 2013, with a further two slated for early 2014.
Editorial Director Samantha Smith said:
"It's crucial to get kids excited about reading at an early age and Frank's vision for a series about friendship, football and fun will do just that. We think it’s brilliant and we're sure readers - and parents - will agree."
