A good book!

It's about a girl named Franny who is a mad scientist. She wants to be friends with other girls, but they don't understand her. For example, when she goes to play softball, she brings a live bat instead of a baseball bat. In the end, though, Franny helps the kids with a big problem and they become friends.

This book was ok not the best book Jim Benton has wrote but still it was ok

A Great Humorous Series for School Age Children

Jim Benton is hilarious. If you like Captain Underpants or the My Weird School series, then you'll love Franny K. Stein. She's a young mad scientist who just wants to fit in, but her classmates don't always appreciate her wacky inventions. Full of non-stop laughs, this book is sure to have you hurrying to the library for the next installment in the series!
