The Frandidate by Jim Benton

From the series “Franny K. Stein Mad Scientist” The Frandidate is the latest episode of Franny’s involvement in growing up as a bright girl who wants to become a “mad scientist.”  Franny would love to take over the world and starts by wanting to be elected class president.  In the process of running her campaign and using her “Frandidate” skin invention to try to please everyone and get everyone’s vote, Franny and her assistant dog, Igor, discover some of the pitfalls of politics.  Franny usually brings creativity and humor into her scientific inventions.  Without exception in this story, lessons of political life are woven through out to keep even adults laughing.  This book is most suitable for readers in grades 1-3.  It would be particularly appropriate as a family evening read aloud with discussion for children in grades 1-5.
