***Franny K. Stein, Mad Scientist
The Fran That Time Forgot
by Jim Benton
Reviewed September 13, 2005.
Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, New York, 2005. 102 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (JF BEN).
The Franny K. Stein books are a delight! I would have thought I’d get tired of them, but Jim Benton has kept the stories fresh, silly, and entertaining.
In Franny’s latest adventure, she decides to go back in time and change her disgustingly cute nickname, so that no one will ever laugh at her. But then when she goes forward in time to see what happens, she discovers that her teenage self has become seriously evil. How can she fix what she has done? How can she escape her evil self?
This book is a very quick read, with lots of entertaining pictures that should appeal to the most reluctant reader. However, it is amusing enough to even keep an adult like me entertained. Good fun!
