Fleabrain Loves Franny
by Joanne Rocklin (Author)
Booktalk: Set in Pittsburgh in 1952, Franny Katzenback is recovering from polio. She falls in love with the brand-new book Charlotte’s Web. Bored and lonely and yearning for a Charlotte of her own, Franny starts up a correspondence with an eloquent flea named Fleabrain who lives on her dog’s tail.
Snippet: When Franny read a book, the waiting stopped. Pittsburgh time slipped away when she was reading, and only the hours of other worlds were true. Being a wide and fast reader, she could finish a book in two days. One, if the books were short.
